Damon Schneider: Slap in the face
November 18, 2009
What Congress is doing is repugnant to the Constitution and is a slap in the face to individual liberty. Whether you are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or independent, you are an American first. To see our Constitutional Republic devolve to the point that members of Congress openly admit that much of what they do goes against the Constitution should compel all of us to stop and think, reflect, maybe even pray. If you care at all about our freedom, we shouldn't be talking about health care reform, we should be talking about congressional reform.
Representatives who voted for this bill are cowards. They ran from the Constitution that they swore to uphold and defend. Rather than represent their constituents (you did hear us at the town hall meetings, didn't you?) they represented the lobbyists and special interest groups who stand to make fortunes if this anathema passes. It is my most sincere hope that your résumés are up to date.
