The “Slaughter” Rule

One could only wish this was a reference to the wrestler known as Sgt. Slaughter. Unfortunately, it is not.

What this really is is an end-run around constitutional requirements that both houses of Congress actually “pass” a bill before sending it to the president. No where in the U.S. Constitution does it say that either house can “deem” a bill to be passed without actually voting on it.

So Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrats didn’t read the bill and now they won’t even vote on it. Since they don’t want to do their job; then they should be removed from their job.
