Yesterday, Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, a nonprofit, public interest law firm with offices in Kansas City, Missouri and Leesburg, Virginia, said it will sue the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members if they try to use the “deem and pass,” “self-executing,” or “Slaughter Rule” to enact H.R. 3590, the legislative version of President Obama’s healthcare proposal, previously approved by the Senate.

According to the March 17 press release at PR Newswire: “Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”
