A lawsuit has been prepared by the Landmark Legal Foundation to be filed as soon as – and if – members of the U.S. House use a trick that has been dubbed the "Slaughter rule" to advance President Obama's vision of socialized health care in the United States. The action was announced today by Mark R. Levin, the president of the foundation, who said the use of the so-called "deem and pass," "self-executing," or "Slaughter rule" to enact H.R. 3590 would result in an immediate legal challenge.

"If this tactic is employed, Landmark will immediately sue the president, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members to prevent them from instituting this unconstitutional contrivance," the announcement said.

The institution, in fact, already has posted a draft of its legal challenge online.

The plan, which has found favor with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because "people won't have to vote on the Senate bill," would allow the U.S. House to simply "deem" the Senate proposal approved in the House without an up-or-down vote on the plan.
