Super Congress or Freedom Kryptonite?

The founders of the American Republic envisioned a world of laws and not of men. Unfortunately men often envision a world founded under their law. To rise above the constraints of our Republic a new threat has emerged and it is named "Super Congress!"

“The joint committee — there are no constraints,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on the Senate floor. “They can look at any program we have in government, any program. … It has the ability to look at everything” as Reid described Super Congress powers. The six Republicans and six Democrats are granted “extraordinary new powers” (Huffington Post) to quickly force legislation through both chambers.

Legislation decided on by the Super Congress would be immune from amendment and lawmakers would only be able to register an up or down vote, eliminating the ability to filibuster and the Speaker of the House loses the ability to prevent unpopular bills from making it to the House floor. The unconstitutional fun does not stop there, Michael MCAulitf reports (Huffington Post) that “even greater super powers, according to multiple news reports and congressional aides with knowledge of the plan” are being uncovered.

Reported targets of the "Super Congress" include Obama administration goals of Tax Increases and Gun Control.

The icing on the cake is that the Obama administration will be the 13th "de facto" member of this self appointed body and it seems unlikely that any freshman "Tea Party" congressional "terrorists" will be included. As a matter of fact, it seems that this process will lack transparency and forgo the entire messy "representative American system of government" thingy.

Bypassing the U.S. Constitution and "taxation without representation" have never been more "Super". Lex Luthor would be proud!

Who is on this "Super Congress?" Is there a reason they are serving "Satan Sandwiches?" Will the American people prevail? ... Tune in next time for the thrilling conclusion.
