Sadie here: Super Congress and the Committee of 12 (sounds like jury duty) and if there is a tie, who is the tie-breaker? The article, in spite of links to the Left, raises a few questions. Time to start asking them. Did the inner circle just kick the Tea Party out?
Congressman Ron Paul warns that the all-powerful new “Super Congress” created by the vote on the debt ceiling will be used to fast-track tax increases while concentrating more power over the nation’s purse strings in the hands of the Washington elite.
The Congressman added that the committee represents “Nothing more than a way to disenfranchise the majority of Congress by denying them the chance for meaningful participation in the crucial areas of entitlement and tax reform. It cedes power to draft legislation to a special commission, hand-picked by the House and Senate leadership.”
DQ here: What do you think. Does this “disenfranchise the majority” or focus the attention on a smaller group that may more easily be held accountable?
