The following is a message shared by a Mississippi PEP reader. Maybe we can get a constitutional attorney to chime in here.
Please forgive the vanity but I have to share this… I could be wrong, but I don’t think I am.
Article 1, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution: “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
IIRC, the House barely passed a version of Obamacare and the Senate passed a version of their own. The House version hit a roadblock in the Senate. The Dems pulled the Senate version from reconciliation and “deemed” it passed rather than risking another vote in the House.
I bring this up because I’ve seen a number of threads today regarding states and AGs reviewing the ruling. If I’m correct in my analysis, the SCOTUS just invalidated the whole law by declaring it a tax which did not originate in the House. Please pass this on to your elected representatives.
