Outrage! Speaker Urges End to Constitutional Governance

March 16, 2010
By John

The Speaker of the House of Representatives appears ready to shred what remains of the Constitution to further her power-mad agenda.   She doesn’t have the votes to pass the broadly despised ObamaCare bill, so she is favoring a procedural move that would ‘deem’ the Senate version as having passed without House members actually having to vote on it.  I guess she wasn’t joking when she responded  “are you serious?” to a question about the source of her constitutional authority to impose ObamaCare.  She apparently doesn’t care what the Constitution says on anything.

 

Only A Tyrant Would Act This Way

Yes, Madame Speaker, we are quite serious.  You are crossing a line that no Constitutional Office should consider or approach.  For it is the end of our Republic with which you are toying.

Today’s Washington Post quotes her as saying of this legislative sleight of hand “it’s more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know. but I like it because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”   She likes it because Congresspersons don’t have to vote on legislation?  The Speaker of the People’s House doesn’t want to vote?

If she thinks it’s just Inside Baseball, why won’t she stand up for an actual vote?  Article I, Section 7 of the US Constitution is quite clear about the requirement for a recorded vote on any legislation.  What is there to fear from it but her own failure?  Of course, that risk is enough to toss the Constitution into the shredder, isn’t it?

I feel a rumbling beneath my feet.  Is that what three hundred million angry voices and stomping feet sounds like?

How did we get to a point where an incomprehensible, corrupt and massively overwrought social engineering agenda can become law without a recorded vote of Congress?  Perhaps it is simply God’s twisted sense of humor at work, prompting America to wake up or perish by allowing an unconstitutional bit of tripe like ObamaCare to pass into law by overtly unconstitutional means. 

 
 

Chavez the New Model for Change in America?

If this doesn’t define tyranny, I cannot imagine what does.  And if Congress can do this to make ObamaCare law, why not push Cap & Trade, Card Check, Financial Regulation or Immigration Reform into law this way, too?  And while we’re at it, why not for electoral and media ‘reform’ (i.e., control)?   Isn’t this the kind of power Hugo Chavez has assumed for himself?  I’m sure Tom Hanks and the Hollywood crowd would gleefully make a movie extolling the virtues of the these kinds of changes. 

Cry, the Beloved Country.  Or should I say “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war”?  Caesar has arrived, and she is demanding her crown.

What shall we do?

    If she gets away with this, I am pulling ALL of moy money out of any bank account I have. They’ll go for levying a tax against checking/deposit accounts before you know it, claiming the public does not know how to manager their cash. A run on banks! If they get away with this it will be the last straw! Refer to your other articles John. The country is broke financially and apparently run by those with no morals and/or fortitude for following their own rules!
