Thanks for Not Reading the Bill Bean

From the Palatine Tea Party…

(Palatine, Illinois) – The Democrats were in such a rush to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) before they wrote it, they did not notice it was missing the ‘severability’ clause. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it best, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Investopedia defines a ‘severability’ clause as, “a contract with a severability clause is essentially one contract divided into many different parts: default on one component of the contract does not prevent the rest of the contract from being fulfilled. If a sentence, clause or term in a contract is deemed invalid by a court, then this problem area of the contract will most often be rewritten to fit both the contract’s original intent and the requirements of the court”.

If a court rules any part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as unconstitutional it will likely mean the entire law will be thrown out.

If Melissa Bean read the 2,400 page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act then why did a 3 term congresswoman not notice the missing ‘severability’ clause?
