Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) spoke out against the Republicans efforts to repeal Obamacare during a meeting of the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on Tuesday.

From the American Spectator

“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she said in a speech on the House floor moments ago. “That is what H.R. 2 does and I rise in opposition to it. And I rise in opposition because it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.

She continued, “Can you tell me what’s more unconstitutional than taking away from the people of America their Fifth Amendment rights, their Fourteenth Amendment rights, and the right to equal protection under the law?”

Apparently Jackson Lee must have been dozing during the Republicans reading of the Constitution or otherwise she wouldn’t have misapplied the Fith and Fourteenth Amendments to the repeal bill which passed yesterday.

If there was anything that was unconsitutional it was the health care bill the Democrats passed last year but that is lost on Rep. Jackson Lee in her mixed-up mind.
