Text of Amicus Brief of 46 U.S. Representatives Supporting Challenge to ACA Under Constitution's Origination Clause (PDF)
U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, R-Tex, and 45 Other Members of the U.S. House of RepresentativesLink to more items from this source
Dec. 3, 2015
34 pages. "The history of the Origination Clause, its purpose, and a proper reading of the relevant Supreme Court decisions, early federal court opinions, and State court decisions that interpreted their respective State Constitution Origination Clauses, all demonstrate that the court below fundamentally erred in devising this novel 'primary purpose' test. If allowed to stand, the 'cornerstone' of the Great Compromise of 1787 could easily be rendered a dead letter simply by the Senate labeling any revenue raising bill with a regulatory 'primary purpose.' ... The Origination Clause is not a relic so easily subverted and discarded[.]" [Sissel v. HHS, No. 15-543 (D.C. Cir. Aug. 7, 2015; cert. pet. filed Oct. 26, 2015)]
