Not a Sou

Sou_Old English term for a 5 centime piece

Every single penny spent by the federal government has to first be appropriated by the House of Representatives, according to the Constitution.

Which means, that despite all the posturing about “We’re doing all we can!”  and “We are shut down by Harry Reid’s control of the Senate!”, the reality is that every smidgen of funding to run, administer, monitor, AND enforce Obamacare has to come from funds appropriated, approved and delineated for each specific purpose by the House of Representatives.

So if they only give out funds that are demarcated for every other specific purpose and specifically restricted from going into anyone’s coffers to make Obamacare happen, then there is no Obamacare.  The government is not going to work on it without being paid.  The amount of work is too massive.  Even at the insistence of all of the few true-believers and the corrupt communists there, the majority of the federal government is NOT going to be giving away massive amounts of their personal time and their lives to make it happen.  They don’t work for free and they don’t make huge surpluses of take-home funds that they can do without. 

I have always maintained that the power/control mad monster that is our national government could be curtailed if the states were to institute nullification and interposition to take charge and restrict the tax dollars flowing to DC.  To starve the beast.

Well, ladies and gents, waiting for the politicians in the  states to realize that they still have cojones is not necessary.  The beast of Obamacare can be starved at once by the folks currently in charge of the House of Representatives, any time they feel like it, despite all of the dog and pony shows and protestations of good intent and helplessness.

All they have to do is stop paying for it.

  1. Mrs. AL says:

    It has been said that the U.S. Constitution was an agreement among men. Nope, it was supposedly a union among the STATES (upper case back in the day, I believe). I therefore maintian it is the States who must reign in the national government over all.

    That said, your post makes me rethink this whole Obamacare business and the House of Reprehensibles. Thanx!
