Mark Levin shows below how Obama is holding the nation ransom in order to seize the power of the purse from Congress, which would absolutely eviscerate the Constitution. Levin explains that Obama has absolutely no constitutional power in this regard, that the power of the purse was explicitly given to the people’s House of Representatives in the Constitution. And Obama’s plan is to seize it and Levin calls this a ‘coup’.
See, Obama doesn’t actually have to raise the debt ceiling himself in order to accomplish this. If his ransom demands (threat of default) are met by the Congress and he gets everything he wants, which is a clean CR and a clean debt ceiling raise with no ‘partisan’ strings, then he will have effectively stolen the power of the purse from Congress. All he’ll have to do is threaten default or some other calamity in the future and Congress will have to bend to his will.
