The Shredding of the Constitution

Postby Haggis@wk » Thu Mar 18, 2010 2:25 pm

We are witnessing firsthand the shredding of our Constitution. It’s amazing how easy the Democrats did that. They accomplished more in an hour than the South and 500,000 lives could not in four years.

More fromThe Hill:

All Republican lawmakers who voted opposed the measure, which had the effect of ending the GOP’s effort to force a vote. They were joined by 28 Democrats, who broke with party members on the vote.
222 Democrats supported the measure, though, meaning enough to proceed. Three members of both parties did not vote.

Republicans had hoped for the separate vote to get Democratic lawmakers on record on the Senate bill, which includes some provisions on abortion, excise taxes, and other issues that House lawmakers find distasteful.

As this stand[s], Democrats plan a vote on a rule on Sunday that would make changes to the Senate-passed bill while deeming the original legislation to have passed the House.

New Gallup polling shows that conservative enthusiasm about voting in the midterms is surging, and that the enthusiasm gap between conservatives and liberals is larger than it was even in 1994.

Werent you one of those who said 'dont worry, it all evens out, be easy' when "the other side" worried about things passed by congress and a repub pres?

(Granted, Obama is extra scary - he's neither d or r, he's "whats in it for me".)
Altoid - curiously strong.
