Health Deform Passes and the Senate Rules Change…Quietly

leave a comment »


Well, the health deform passed the Senate this morning after a long fight with Senators who demonstrated this Reagan principle:

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. – Ronald Reagan

So with sellouts like Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Chris Dodd of Connecticut, and others who scored windfalls for their states by demonstrating they can be bought off like the political whores that they are, proved Reagan right once again. 

The House and Senate, once again, have disregarded the will of the American people in passing this bill.  Many states polled showed majority opinion against the bill, yet the senators and representatives from those states voted for it with extreme arrogance.  And I look forward to the legal fight when Obama signs it into law and within seconds after, the federal courts get slammed with suit after suit, questioning the bills constitutionality. 

Basically, the Senate language is the first big step towards a single-payer system, completely socialistic and in violation of the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, 10th, and 14th Amendments.

But did you see this little “gem”?

Turns out, Senator Jim DeMint, R-SC, noted that, with the passage of the bill, there as a Senate rule change that stated, with regards to the Independent Medicare Advisory Board:

"it shall not be in order in the senate or the house of representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection."

So basically, the “Death Panels” as Governor Palin has named them, not only are a pencil-whip away from being law, but to bring legislation up that would repeal them would be “out of order”, according to Senate rules, requiring a 2/3 vote in the Senate to change the rules.  Of course, this rule change is in violation to the Senate’s own rules of requiring a 2/3 vote to change the rules, but it also can very well be construed as unconstitutional.  The same goes for the House.  Of course, what good are rules if the House and Senate can break them whenever they want.

You see, no law is unrepealable.  If you recall, even a law set in motion by the Constitution can be repealed, as we saw with prohibition, which was enacted by the 18th Amendment and later repealed by the 21st Amendment.

So no matter how much that moron Harry Reid likes to think he can put down a law that no one can move, it can be moved.  But such a provision even putting this in shows the utter arrogance and lack of concern in this standing congress.  They simply don’t believe in representing the American people anymore, but rather, pushing the “agenda”.  I’m thinking we’ve quietly moved from a constitutional republic to a oligarchial democracy, where the majority of congressional elites make the rules and the American public is wholly ignored, except when these elites come to prostitute themselves for your election vote.

So America not only gets a lump of coal in her stocking with this idiotic piece of dung legislation but the stocking now has a stain that will take a whole bunch of Americans, scrubbing, before it comes out.

I really wonder what the Founders would think of this.
