Democrat James Clyburn Bluntly Reveals Democrats Plan to Use the "Nuclear Option" to Pass ObamaCare - Video

Here is video of Democrat Rep. James Clyburn flatly revealing that "the magic number is 50" in the U.S. Senate to pass ObamaCare. That means, the Senate will use the "Nuclear Option" (Reconciliation Process) to ram the bill through the Senate when the time comes. Up to now, as far as I know, no Democrat has come right out and said it, but now Clyburn has. He even said that on the day of the vote, "The Vice-President will probably be in the chair." Meaning to cast the 51st vote for passage, if needed.

All their talk of "bipartisanship" is a total sham. The Democrats appear ready to impose Socialized Medicine on America no matter the political cost to themselves. If they are determined to do so, Republicans will simply not have the votes to stop it in the Senate, UNLESS, enough of an outcry takes place from across the country to scare about nine Democratic Senators into not voting in favor using the Nuclear Option.

With all due respect to Freedom's Lighthouse, why aren't conservative blogs emphasizing the following MAJOR constitutional problem with Obamacare?

Give the federal Constitution is silent about programs like Obamacare, the 10th A. automatically reserves government power to regulate and lay taxes for such things to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

In fact, Chief Justice Marshall had established the following case precedent, now wrongly ignored, which appropriately limits the power of the feds to lay taxes.

"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Chief Justice Marshall, GIBBONS V. OGDEN (1824)

So not only is misguided Obama's proposed healthcare constitutionally unauthorized, but based on Justice Marshall's official words, Congress never had the power to lay taxes to fund such a program in the first place.

What's going on, IMO, is the following. State sovereignty-ignorant voters have been electing lawmakers to both the state legislatures and the federal senate who are as state sovereignty-impaired as the voters are. Consequently, these lawmakers have not been doing their jobs to protect state sovereignty by protecting citizens from illegal federal taxes and unconstitutional federal government interference in their lives as evidenced by illegal Obamacare.

Finally, the following link should help give people an idea how state sovereignty-ignorant voters have shot themselves in the foot with big, corrupt federal government as a consequence of the ill-conceived, anti-state sovereignty 16th and 17th Amendments.

The 16th & 17th Amendments and the big, corrupt fed. gov.

A health care bill, with the public option, is going to pass both houses. that’s been obvious for months now. they are deliberately stalling, milking the “opposition” for all it is worth. democrats don’t care that nearly half of this country opposes their plans. that’s irrelevant. i can’t believe most of you doubted that they would pass a bill by year’s end. that has been the plan from the beginning, and nothing will change that.
