The Sequester, the Budget Process, and OMNIBUS Legislation
It is a shock to see both the SENATE and the PRESIDENT recommend Bill of Attainder to do away with the HOUSE of Representatives constitutionally mandated process.
The US constitutional Budget Process MUST originate in and by the will of the people, as represented in the House of Representatives.
The Budget Process was never an all or none process until the lazy SENATE imposed its will over the HOUSE back in the 1960’s for the entire Government Budget to be presented at one time so they all could go home early.
Over time, the OMNIBUS legislation process has corrupted the entire congress beyond recognition as Congress critters in both the House and the Senate routinely add not related projects and huge PORK spending to a Federal Budget Bill and that now has institutionalized government funding PORK without representation.
Since the 17th Amendment, the Senate has had too much opportunity to corrupt the Congressional processes and this has come to pass.
The HOUSE is charged with representing the People and the people do not want OBAMACARE. The People want equal protection under the Constitution and the sitting president is the most seditious in history, against constitutional process.
When OMNIBUS legislation process initially became popular, the call for a Presidential line item veto was heard but never answered.
Today the HOUSE has reverted back to the CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED PROCESS – A BUDGET PASSED LINE BY LINE ON MERIT.
The SENATE has all but forgotten its Constitutional charge to act in the best interests of their respective states, after all, 36 STATES HAVE ELECTED NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN OBAMACARE.
A Bill of Attainder is unconstitutionally directed by the President and the Senate at the HOUSE, without the will of the People. Sovereignty is the casualty.
