If it somehow survives its unconstitutional origination as a tax in the Senate, I believe that as a tax it only requires a simple majority vote in the Senate to repeal it. Not a super-majority.

But with the number of RINO's on board, even if the Republicans win a simple majority of the seats in the Senate, there is a very high liklihood that they will have several fence jumpers when it comes time to vote.

Who would have guessed that a forum on coal burning would have more constitutional scholars than all the law schools in the country combined? :o

Since I don't have a big print copy I have to put a pair of reading glasses on, a few years back I could read just fine without. Why do you ask? :oops:

I will defer to experts other than those I find here. You are welcome to petition SCOTUS and point out to them their errors. You will find them gracious and thankful for your assistance.

Perhaps the so-called experts have lived with the idea of a "living Constitution" for so long that they fail to see the simplicity and founding intent of Article 1, Section 7. There are so few words. The experts are probably better at determining for us the intent of 1,200 plus page bills that Congress votes on without reading.

Heck & here I was thinking that this was a law that was passed by both houses & signed by the Pres. then some lawyers, judges & such (even if not as knowledgeable as our own NEPA panel) but none the less able to use tax money to take it before the SCOTUS. Then they after much more tax money found it to be Constitutional, call it a tax, penalty, fee or whatever it is now the law but then again who am I to say, lets spend even more tax money to be able to avoid really doing what they are paid to do & run the damn country already & this time not into the ground. :roll:

Because they don't teach the constitution in law school.

They teach the history of legal decisions and precedent so they can "legally" get around the constitution.

Just as for all bills, the Obamacare bill was passed by both houses and then signed into law by the President, but for those bills that extract money from the people, they must always originate in the House Of Representatives, and this one did not.

The way the Constitution was originally set up the House Of Representateves (whom the people elected) represented the people, and the Senate represented only the interests of the States (who appointed them to their Senate positions, as they were not elected).

Only Amendments can change the Constitution, and again I must emphasise that there is no amendment repealing Article 1, section 7 of the Constitution.

Though I often can't agree with some of your posts wholly, you do have a tendency to really get it right on many occasions.

Though our NEPA constitutional scholars are expert on common sense and understanding the plain language our Constitution is written in, they fail miserably when it comes to niggling and parsing the language as seems to be required today.

You must mean Commanders in Chief Reagan, GHW Bush, Clinton, and GW Bush. US domestic crude oil production has been increasing each year since President Obama was elected. Prior to that it fell steadily ever since 1985. The reality is, we can't blame or credit any of these CICs for production levels. So if I don't blame the last three GOP guys for lower production, how about you don't say silly things about President Obama?

Good graph and chart here:

domestic production fell because of lower prices for crude. why drill or produce when the price is lower from foreign sources? You think there is only one reason for prices to be what they are? I worked in the oil fields back in the early 80's and they had the wells choked because of cheap foreign oil. why sell for nothing?
