Many are confused thinking that the Supreme Court decision that Obamacare is constitutional based upon the government's taxing authority is the final ruling and, as such, the “settled” law of the land which cannot be disputed nor appealed.
The reality is far from that perception.
When Chief Justice Roberts, writing the majority opinion, declared Obamacare was Constitutional, citing the federal government’s taxing authority, he opened a door not even Obama’s lawyers used in making their arguments before the Court.
In opening that door, the Supreme Court left another door wide open for a Constitutional point to be declared that Obamacare, citing that very Supreme Court decision, is in fact unconstitutional using the ‘Origination Clause’ of the Constitution – Article 1 Section 7 Clause 1 – which states that all spending and taxing bills must originate in the House of Representatives.
For Obamacare to be stopped, only one member of the House must announce that he/she is ‘blue-slipping’ Obamacare.
The citing of the 'Origination Clause' of the Constitution is not some arcane legislative maneuver - in fact, it's been cited and employed 29 times over the past 20 years by the House. The House and Senate even have a colloquial term for the action - 'blue slipping' – a nickname that reflects the blue paper on which the form used for citing the unconstitutionality of a taxing bill in violation of the Origination Clause is printed.
Obamacare can be blue-slipped by any member of the House of Representatives. It doesn't require a vote and it doesn't require a committee to approve the action. It only takes a single patriot - just one from the 435 members of the House - to cite the obvious conflict between the Supreme Court ruling and the Constitution's Origination Clause.
To kill Obamacare we only need one member of the House with political courage, whom 'We the People' must make bulletproof through our unwavering support in order to shelter him/her from the blistering political attack that will come his/her way.
And here’s how we can support that person who brings an end to the Obamacare madness the nation is going through right now.
If we let the members of the House know that we will unconditionally support that first representative who blue slips Obamacare and that we are ready to support his/her candidacy to maintain his/her present office or even to support his/her run for any other office – even the presidency itself.
That representative won’t have to raise campaign cash and won’t have to be concerned about national political money or lobbyists or other favors being pulled away that would otherwise make that person vulnerable in his/her election efforts.
If all 435 members of the House were getting the continual message that the first representative to blue slip Obamacare would have the support of a grateful nation – support that would shelter that representative from political retribution, that person would undoubtedly present him/herself to blue slip Obamacare, thereby stopping it.
It really is just that simple.
Fight the urge to give this a name. Let’s just get united in a way that no one will be able to predict what might happen next. If we organize, we will be defeated – written off as a ‘kook’ or extremist movement.
Let’s become a nation of people united in bringing accountability back to government – which is the greatest danger of Obamacare. Obama and his minions are orchestrating a new form of governance – one in which the government is no longer accountable to the people, but the people are accountable to the government. If we allow this transition to happen, it will become a never-ending sequence of the government telling us what we can do, when we can do it and with whom we may do it. Simply stated, our free nation status cannot survive Obamacare.
It really is just as simple as described.
Please pass this on to everyone you know. Call members of the House of Representatives and tell them of your feelings – not in a way to attempt to make them accountable – it’s obvious they feel no real accountability or they wouldn’t be conducting themselves as they are.
Just let them know you are one of millions who would support the representative in his/her present office and any future offices he/she might seek if that representative will be the first to blue slip Obamacare.
And If they will not, let them know you will not and cannot support them for any elected office.
It can be done. Obamacare can be stopped. It’s up to us.
“Hi. I’m calling to let the Congressman/Congresswoman know that I’d like them to display their patriotism for our Constitution and our republic by blue slipping Obamacare. Since the Supreme Court declared Obamacare constitutional citing the government’s taxing authority, it is simultaneously unconstitutional because all taxing bills must originate in the House of Representatives.
Blue slipping Obamacare will stop it in its tracks and if the Congressman/Congresswoman will stand for the Constitution, I promise to support him/her in all future elections and I know millions of others who would do the same all across the country.
We could literally sweep him/her into the White House. Would you please pass that on to the Congressman/Congresswoman?
Please share this with everyone you know. Post this in your social media sites, or provide a link to my website in your postings. Let’s join together to save our country.

Call these representatives and let them know the vast majority of the American people are with them and want to support them. Ask how we can help and then let me know and let’s start talking about it and the air. The truth that cannot be denied is that Constitution and Obamacare simply aren’t compatible and to allow Obamacare to be unconstitutionally forced upon us changes our relationship with government forever – from the government being accountable to the people to the people being accountable for our actions and behaviors to the government. Obamacare is tyranny.
Obamacare can be stopped.
