Attorneys for Matt Sissel, is a small business owner who wants to pay medical expenses on his own and has financial, philosophical and constitutional objections to being ordered to purchase a health plan he does not need or want, have told a federal appeals court that the authors of the Constitution meant different things when they used different words. Specifically, “amend” and “originate.” Their explanation came on Thursday as they argued that the Constitution requires that all tax bills in Congress begin in the House of Representatives, and that Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., manipulated the legislation that eventually gave America Obamacare by taking the bill number for an innocuous veterans housing program that had been approved by the House, pasting it on the front of thousands of Obamacare pages, and voting on it. They are arguing that means that the entire law was adopted unconstitutionally and should be canceled, including its $800 billion in taxes. Essentially making the Constitution itself a silver bullet to kill Obamacare. The case, brought by the Pacific Legal Foundation, is based on the Constitution’s Origination Clause.
