It did originate in the House. Yes it was worked on by Reid, Pelosi and Obama together but it was brought to the floor of the House first. this argument does not wash. If the President proposes a budget and the House agrees with it, they just sign a sponsor onto the bill and drop it in the box and it is voted on. Does that mean the bill originated in the WH?
Let's fight the bill from the state level and rebel against it.
