Mark Levin on Fire, Slams GOP Leaders, Aug 20, 2013
Mark Levin, author of The Liberty Amendments, was in full attack mode on the Sean Hannity Show, August 20, 2013. The core topic was Obamacare, but Hannity and Levin broadened that into a fiery discussion of the GOP’s general timidity and fecklessness.
The GOP has what it needs to freeze Obamacare in its tracks. It has the Constitutional power-of-the-purse authority that the Framers put in the Constitution for exactly this kind of situation. It has the majority that Conservatives won for the GOP in 2010. And it has the will of the American people as expressed in countless polls favoring repeal or defunding of Obamacare.
How can the GOP-led House defund it? Follow the Cruz/Lee plan for a Continuing Resolution that funds everything in the federal Leviathan except Obamacare. And, in advance, use a professional PR firm to lay responsibility for any cynical revenge “shutdowns” on Harry Reid and Barack Obama, which is exactly where it would belong.
If the GOP leaders don’t stand up when they hold the cards they need, when will they stand up? Or, as Levin says, are they really just another part of the whole Washington Big Government complex, guardians of the status quo, cajoling us with strong conservative rhetoric and then betraying us when the time comes to stand and deliver?
We’re about to find out.
The video above centers around Obamacare, the biggest alligator in the swamp that is Washington, DC. Levin’s new book is about draining that swamp via the Constitution’s Article 5. Note that Levin is not the first to pursue the Article-5 approach. See also the links here, here, and here. Levin’s fine book, with its cogent arguments and historical references, may bring enough support to the Article-5 movement for it to reach critical mass and make a real difference to our country’s future.
