I continue to be amazed at the coverage of the so-called “Slaughter Solution” being proposed by House Democrats in their zealous fervor to pass Obamacare.

In both conservative and liberal publications, I’ve seen it referred to as a “stunt” or “maneuver” or “parliamentary procedure.” It is none of these. It’s a flat-out subversion of the U.S. Constitution. Article 1, Section 7 could not be more clear on what has to happen for a bill to become law. What the Democrats are trying to do is akin to declaring martial law. It may not rise to an act of treason, but it is unquestionably a violation of the oath they took to uphold the Constitution. It makes the constitutional crisis of Watergate look like a garden party. It’s time to refer to it as what it is.
