Article 1. Section 4.
The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first day in December, unless they shall by law appoint a different Day.
This Article 1. Section 4. of the Constitution was changed by the Twentieth Amendment section 2. Ratified January 23, 1933
The Congress shall assemble at least once in every year, and such meeting shall begin at noon on the 3rd day of January, unless they shall by law appoint a different day.
By now you may be saying, who cares?
Why not use the Amendment process to be sure a majority of the people and the states agree that forced health care, that is not listed in any of the Articles of our Constitution, should be a right? Because the liberals and democrats can force it through a Capitol they control and debt money can be used to seal the deals with those who have no respect for our Constitution. The 2000 pages of tyranny would never make it through the Amendment process, that is why they need to force through forcecare.
Seventeen Amendments have been added to our Constitution since the first ten Amendments (The Bill of Rights) and along the way we decided that congress's requirement to
The Constitution of The United States Article. V.
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.
Read some of the Amendments, 11 through 27 your self and decide where forced government run health care ranks, or maybe you prefer 51 or 60 Senators paid off with more debt money deciding something this important for you and future generations.
If you decide with the Senators prepare your self for even more polarization in our country because so far not one Republican agrees that this bill is the answer. A majority of the people and the states would like true health care reform with free market principals that also addresses tort reform and competition between the states.
See I told you so... Maybe one day in the year 2020 those in favor of this current health care bill will say; See I told you government run health care would be everything that was promised. Slim just left town.
I have lost all confidence in a government that spends close to a trillion dollars on every bill that is passed and is full of ear marks, it should be stopped. I do believe the more important crisis we have is a Debt Crisis and it should be addressed prior to any new spending bills.
With almost a year of discussion on the subject of health care, I am now sick of talking about it. Can you imagine how long we will be talking about health care if our
One more thought. The requirement for congress to work a minimum of one day per year should give you an idea of how much responsibility our founding fathers originally intended for our Federal government. The states were to take care of themselves with very little intervention from a central power.
