The Most Exclusive Club*

Lets in chowderheads like this:

...In the interview, which took place on Oct. 21, CNSNews.com asked Burris, “Federally, if you look at it from a federal standpoint, what area, specifically of the Constitution, would give Congress the power to mandate an individual to have health insurance?”

“Well, that’s under certainly the laws of the--protect the health, welfare of the country," Burris said in response. "That’s under the Constitution. We’re not even dealing with any constitutionality here. Should we move in that direction? What does the Constitution say? To provide for the health, welfare and the defense of the country.”

Before anyone scoffs too loudly at Senator Burris, do you really think the Constitutional enumeration of limited Congressional powers at Article I, section 8 today constrains the Senate and House in any meaningful way?

If you do, I have a bridge to sell you.

* The US Senate is often called "the most exclusive club in the world".

They have no care for The Constitution - after all, they were elected by a "democratic majority" and thus are entitled to do whatever they think best.

I spoke with my Representative yesterday to tell him plainly I wanted him to vote "no" on the power-grab misnamed as "health care."

He responded that he was going to vote yes - in spite of the fact that a majority of his constituents oppose it - because QUOTE: "I believe it's the right thing to do, and I'm going to vote my conscience."

Sir: You were NOT elected to "the house of superior consciences" - your title is REPRESENTATIVE, which (for the democrats) means you are supposed to REPRESENT the people in your district.

You are SUPPOSED to be *OUR* voice in Congress. Further, the oath you took promises to uphold and defend THE CONSTITUTION - not "follow the dictates of my own conscience."

The hubris is beyond sickening.

You, Sir, are a traitor - to your oath, to the Constitution, and to the people of your district.

May you someday suffer the proper legal consequences of your treason.
