Petition to the House of Representatives
By Citizens of the United States

Whereas Article VI of The Constitution of the United States, prescribes that all senators “shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution;”

Whereas all senators holding office on February 2, 2011, in the Congress of the United States have, as a condition for holding office, sworn to the following oath,

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of
evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.;

Whereas certain of these senators on February 2, 2011, deliberately cast their votes against repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, an act that at the time of the vote had been determined by the
federal judiciary, in a jurisdiction including most states, to be unconstitutional;

Whereas the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 contains provisions that obviously contradict the intentions of the people who ratified the Constitution and its amendments, and is therefore antithetical to the Constitution;

Article I Section 2 of the Constitution states,
The House of Representatives…shall have the sole Power of

Article I Section 3 of the Constitution states,
The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate…;

Article I Section 5 of the Constitution states,
Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of twothirds, expel a Member.;

Article II Section 4 of the Constitution states,
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.; and

Whereas violation of an oath of office is a high crime, as defined by those who ratified the Constitution;

Therefore, we the undersigned citizens of the United States do hereby petition the House of Representatives of the United States to pass a resolution instructing the President of the Senate to require a vote in the Senate to expel those members of the Senate who violated their oaths of office by supporting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 in spite of said Act’s unconstitutionality; and

We, the undersigned, do further petition the House of Representatives to impeach the Vice President of the United States in the event that the Vice President, in the capacity of President of the Senate, should fail to abide by said resolution of the House, thereby aiding and abetting the commission of a high crime.
