Levin: 'In A Functioning Constitutional Republic' House Would Impeach Sebelius

February 14, 2012 - 5:32 PM

On last night’s show, Mark Levin said that, in a functioning Constitutional republic, the House of Representatives would subpoena HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and draw up articles of impeachment.

“The fact of the matter is, what would happen if we were living in a functioning constitutional republic…is that articles of impeachment would be drawn up against the Secretary of HHS - I’m not trying to be controversial, I’m telling you how it would work - for violating her oath to uphold the Constitution.”

Levin was voicing concerns that the Obama administration is violating the First Amendment and Religious Liberty Clause by requiring health plans to cover contraception products and services. He rhetorically asked what John Boehner and the Republican-led House were going to do in response to Obama’s use of power that is “not granted to him under the Constitution.”

“My problem is: the Republicans control the House of Representatives - now, what are they going to do about it?”

“They can subpoena the Secretary of Health and Human Services, bring her in front of the House…and demand answers to a whole host of questions about her supposed authority, under our Constitution, to violate the Constitution.”
