Sheila Jackson Lee Says Repealing ObamaCare Violates Constitution

"..No Constitutional Scholar She.. !"

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, said on Tuesday afternoon that repealing the national health care law would violate the Constitution. Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans' H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment's right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause.

“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process," she said in a speech on the House floor moments ago. "That is what H.R. 2 does and I rise in opposition to it....

I'd like to know where in the constitutions enumerated powers she find the justification for Obamacare . . . .

If she thinks making a constitutional appeal will energize the left she's clearly smoking crack. :rolleyes: The left does not believe the constitution is worth following . . . .

This is also the same person who stressed that hurricanes weren't getting African American names. She also thinks we've been to Mars. She isn't the brightest bulb on the tree for sure. But she keeps getting elected.

:rolleyes:

She's just playing the typical leftist Constitution card. They, wrongly, cherrypick the document and twist things to fit their means. This is the 5th amendment in it's entirety:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation
The "deprived of life, liberty, or property" line pertains to criminal prosecution, not government mandated healthcare. :rolleyes:

And this is a redistricting year - with the GOP in charge of the redistricting. It can be easily done.

Truth be told - fixing it along logical lines WOULD screw the democrats - especially those like ms. Jackson Lee - right out of office.
