Mark Levin: Overwhelming Majority of Republicans Violated Their Oath of Office

By Michael Morris | December 16, 2014 | 10:32am EST

Nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin said on his radio show yesterday that the overwhelming majority of Republicans in Congress "voted to violate the Constitution and violated their oaths of office" when they voted for the omnibus spending bill.

“67 Republicans in the House said no.” stated Levin, and 18 Republicans in the Senate also said no. So, said Levin:

“The overwhelming majority of Republicans in the House and Senate voted for Obamacare, voted for amnesty, voted to violate the constitution and violated their oaths of office, and undermined the last election, and undermined your franchise. None of this was presented to you before you voted on the first Tuesday of November. None of these people said that they are working on a massive spending bill with Obama that will fund Obamacare and whatever imperial amnesty he executes – not one of them!

“I will not participate in this scam. I will not participate in the dissolution of this Republic. I will not participate in the propaganda machine that has become the Republican Party and its mouthpieces and cheerleaders in the pseudo conservative media, whether it’s cable TV or radio or websites.

“This budget was passed in the House with lie piled on lie.”

Article VI, Clause 3 of the Constitution says: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”

The oath taken by all members of the House and Senate is as follows: “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.”
