Re: Debt panel
Careful with the tarring and feathering of U.S. Senators. I once had a post pulled (on another forum) for a tongue in cheek suggestion that we might be better off if a few bureaucrats contracted led poisoning. This was on a thread concerning the topic of some agency, (either the EPA or BATF, can't really remember) wanting to ban lead in ammunition. When I complained to mods about my post being pulled, I was banned.
Anyway, last night in the debates, Newt Gingrich said that this "super committee" was unconstitutional, and that there was no justification for having this committee doing the job that was the responsibility of all of congress. I'm not a big fan of Newt, but he got that one right.
What Obama and the liberal congress is doing is fundamentally changing the way our government works. Power is being incrementally transferred from elected representatives, which is we the people, to committees, agencies, and bureaucracies. We should not stand for this BS.
