Hold Congress Members accountable for breaking their Oath of Office to support and defend The Constitution of the United States sign now

Petition to hold Congress Members accountable for breaking their Oath of Office to support and defend The Constitution of the United States.


It is the firm belief of the undersigned that by supporting such obviously unconstitutional actions, Representatives that voted for H.R.3962 and Senators that voted for H.R.3590 knowingly and willfully violated their Oath of Office to support and defend The Constitution of the United States. We plead with every State Attorney General and the Attorney General of the United States of America to prosecute the attached list of Representatives and Senators for perjury.

Requiring Citizens to purchase a product or service, such as health insurance, exceeds the power given to Congress by Article I Section 8 of The Constitution of the United States: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.". No where does The Constitution of the United States give Congress the power to require a Citizen to purchase a product or service.

The special deals with Senators from Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming, made to secure votes for H.R.3590 do not treat States and Citizens uniformly. That is in direct violation of The Constitution of the United States. Article I Section 8: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States." Article IV Section 2: "The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of Citizens in the several States." H.R.3962 Section 1125 requires a different payment schedule for the State of California. That is in direct violation of Article I Section 8 and Article IV Section 2 of The Constitution of the United States.

The Senate greatly exceeded their power to amend Bills that have passed The House of Representatives. When Bill H.R.3590 titled Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009 passed The House of Representatives it was 6 pages and was intended to aid service men and women with first-time homes purchases. The Senate does not have the power to originate a Bill that would raise revenue so they used H.R.3590. The Senate modified the original intent of the Bill passed by The House of Representatives. The Senate deleted all of the text from the original Bill and wrote their 2407 page health care reform Bill re-titled Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. What The Senate did to H.R.3590 was not amending but an attempt to work around Article I Section 7 of The Constitution of the United States "All Bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills."
