Landmark Legal Foundation to File Suit to Stop President's Health Plan if 'Slaughter Rule' is Used

LEESBURG, Va., March 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, today issued a warning to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives about the possible use of the so-called "deem and pass," "self-executing," or "Slaughter Rule" to enact H.R. 3590, the legislative version of President Obama's healthcare proposal that has been previously approved by the Senate. If this tactic is employed, Landmark will immediately sue the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members to prevent them from instituting this unconstitutional contrivance.

"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."

(A draft of the complaint Landmark will file is available at

Founded in 1976, Landmark Legal Foundation is a nonprofit, public interest law firm with offices in Kansas City, Missouri and Leesburg, Virginia.
