I have been reading about the mandate Obama has to raise taxes. Everyone has an opinion.
Article 1, Section 7 starts out like this:
“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.”
So how does Obama figure HE has the right to raise revenue taxes, if, essentially, the same House of Representative was re-elected?
Go ahead and take the tax hike plan out for a spin Mr. President.
Nobody will mind.
But if you want to know what your Obama-voter mandate really was, here it is:
Your mandate was to give stuff away to people - so they would vote for you.
That is the balance of power we have here in America.
As citizens in failed states move to more Red States the House of Representatives should be a bit more enthusiastic about who they are and what their job is.
Or they will be voted out.
2014 will be a referendum on them.
