That's one of Ben's biggest problems, he thinks he God. Well Ben you're not. I'd never merely call you to talk about anything. I'd send it in writing to you also. You've already proven over and over again you CANNOT BE TRUSTED!

I will not be hunting in Neb. until this baffoon is gone. Any person who would sell out his nation, for thirty peices of silver, is no American!

Wow, Congress Writes "No Change" Clause in Healthcare Bill

Confederate Yankee: < http://confederateyankee.mu.nu/archives/29614... ;

The language of Section 3403 seems rather explicit:

SUBSECTION.—It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House
of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment,
or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this
subsection.

Ed Morrissey's take is that Congress lacks the Constitutional
authority to bind the decisions future Congresses can make, which
would including passing new laws, amending existing laws, or
repealing laws. Reid is demanding not just power over the current
Congress, but any future Congress as well.

Are We The People the only ones who believe in the U.S. Constitution? Apparently so. This, if passed, will be held up in court for a long, long time.

I'm disappointed that someone from the fine state of Nebraska - Sen. Nelson - would allow his vote to be bought on such a critical issue.

But what can I say? Hawaii is getting some special deals too. And on top of that, we're Obama's birthplace.

We might as well become part of the European Union. The United States of France. How do you say "cornhusker" in French?

Bottom line? That's what they're after. Soon we'll be getting a catalog so we can order our "uniforms" and look like N Korea.

I think the only choice in the matter will be S, N, L, XL, or XXL. But at least it'll be free, government-provided. After all, government is supposed to provide for all of our essentials in life, right? Healthcare, clothing, jobs, food, shelter...
