Sure this sounds great. Cant come to an agreement? Sidestep the entire legislative process this country is predicated on and do whatever the fck you want . Whats the point of the other 94 members of the senate and 429 members of the house? The arrogance and preposterous lunacy that is fueling such an absurd idea must be a function of two things: The problems this country has are far worse then any of can possible fathom and WE THE PEOPLE are about to channel Marcellus Wallace while our increasingly dangerous politicians play the part of Zed. If its not too much trouble, I’d like to remind our politicians what the purpose of rolling elections, checks and balances and having both the senate and house: ACCOUNTABILITY.
To give you an example of what has been surely tweeted around to these dipshyts in DC read on:
This “Super Congress,” composed of members of both chambers and both parties, isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Constitution, but would be granted extraordinary new powers.
Legislation approved by the Super Congress … would then be fast-tracked through both chambers, where it couldn’t be amended by simple, regular lawmakers, who’d have the ability only to cast an up or down vote. With the weight of both leaderships behind it, a product originated by the Super Congress would have a strong chance of moving through the little Congress and quickly becoming law. Super Congress would be less accountable than the system that exists today, and would find it easier to strip the public of popular benefits. Negotiators are currently considering cutting the mortgage deduction and tax credits for retirement savings, for instance, extremely popular policies that would be difficult to slice up using the traditional legislative process.
