    Rep. Bachmann: Tax Bill Violates Article 1, Section 7 of U.S. Constitution

    By Nicholas Ballasy

    (CNSNews.com) -- Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told CNSNews.com that the tax bill passed by the Senate on Wednesday violates the U.S. Constitution.

    “Article 1, section 7 says that all revenue bills originate in the House and that is our province and, of course, this originated in the Senate,” she told CNSNews.com in an interview Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

    In other words (common sense), the House could have ignored the Senate's proposal. By accepting the proposal for debate the House "originated" it.

    Billwald has a thousand dollars in his hand, and says I can not have it. I snach it away, since he didnt stop me, he gave me "permission" to keep it. Actually, that makes more sense
