Not satisfied with the monstrous majorities they hold in both houses of Congress and the accompanying power to pass any and all legislation of their choosing, the Democrats in Congress are raping and pillaging their way through this legislative session in a manner that makes the Vikings seem like innocent Catholic schoolgirls. It is hard to decide which is more stunning – their lack of shame or the media’s blatant complicity in their actions.
Throughout Congress’s history the party in power has always had the ability to control the calendar; control the debate to some extent; and with a large enough majority, be assured of their agenda’s ultimate passage. However, never before in this illustrious body’s history have we seen one party abuse their power to this extent – literally shutting the other party out. Today’s announcement of their health care ‘reform’ legislation and the blocking of Republicans, Republican staffers and even the general public from attending; is just the latest in a long line of atrocious power manipulation by this Speaker and her cohorts. Previously, these same corrupt politicians locked Republican committee members out of the room where the health care reform legislation was being written. So much for the days of Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill sitting down together and hammering out tax policy – nope, Democrats today just lock you out of the room and write it without you then accuse conservatives of not being part of the solution.
This country was founded on the principles of representative government. The founders rebelled against a tyrannical power almost exclusively due to their revulsion at the practice of taxation without representation. But, today in America if your representative or senator is a Republican or an independent or even a conservative minded Democrat, you are a victim of taxation without representation. Republicans, Independents and conservative Democrats are being completely shut out from the legislative process. Their amendments are not being allowed to come to the floor for consideration; they are not being allowed the opportunity to voice their opposition to legislation; and now Pelosi has gone so far as to prevent those who don’t agree with her from even attending a public unveiling of the legislation.
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the Democrats who conspire with them have hijacked this government. These people took an oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution, and they have not only failed to uphold that oath, they have blatantly and intentionally violated that oath. Justice would be best served by their immediate incarceration in a federal penitentiary – at a minimum the American people must demand that these treasonous criminals be soundly defeated in next November’s elections.
