Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) pointed out some rather astounding language in the Senate health care bill during floor remarks tonight. First, he noted that there are a number of changes to Senate rules in the bill--and it's supposed to take a 2/3 vote to change the rules. And then he pointed out that the Reid bill declares on page 1020 that the Independent Medical Advisory Board cannot be repealed by future Congresses:

Sure it can, Harry. That’s what the Bill of Rights was for. Particularly Number Two.
PI$$ on Reid. WE THE PEOPLE can do anything we want. IT’S OUR GOVERNMENT. Turdboy Reid is one of OUR employees.
To which Obama will respond: "We Won"
Hmmmm....calling for the REVOLUTION, eh, Reid?
I have yet to see any document labeled as “irrevocable”
that wasn’t, in fact, “revocable.”
or if they pass it and contravene the constitution like other issues, they continue to set precedence in the new “this Aint America no more” constitution. Continuing to foist crappola on America.
Then the next step is outlawing republicans as a right wing aryan nation hate group so there is no opposition.
You have to remember, they are a bunch of arrogant liars protecting their arrogant liar chief. Here they are demonstrating it and if the people are sttopid enough to buy it, they will slide it and spin it.
He worked for the mob. He thinks YOU are his employee and don’t you ever forget it or he will have someone kneecap you.
Update II: My friend, the smartest lawyer I know, writes: "And yes. It is unconstitutional."
I hope so.
That may end some of it, but will not terminate the tax collections and regulations. Enforcement can be defunded, but the IRS would still have the teeth and legal regulations to go after those who didn't pay their health insurance taxes.
If they get away with this, they will add that stipulation to every left wing bill that is passed from now on.
Actually, the more unconstitutional goobers this contains, the better. Our only hope now is unending litigation.
Anything can be repealed if it isn’t funded!! LOL
What say you, Congressman Billybob?
“Update II: My friend, the smartest lawyer I know, writes: “And yes. It is unconstitutional.”
Yes, it is. Was doing some research and there are some cases concerning this issue.
Fletcher v. Peck - “The principle asserted is, that one legislature is competent to repeal any act which a former legislature was competent to pass; and that one legislature cannot abridge the powers of a succeeding legislature.
The correctness of this principle, so far as respects general legislation, can never be controverted.
United States v. Winstar - “Hence, although we have recognized that “a general law . . . may be repealed, amended or disregarded by the legislature which enacted it,” and “is not binding upon any subsequent legislature,” Manigault v. Springs, 199 U.S. 473, 487 (1905), [n.19] on this side of the Atlantic the principle has always lived in some tension with the constitutionally created potential for a legislature, under certain circumstances, to place effective limits on its successors, or to authorize executive action resulting in such a limitation.”
Manigault v. Springs - “As this is not a constitutional provision, but a general law enacted by the legislature, it may be repealed, amended, or disregarded by the legislature which enacted it. This law was doubtless intended as a guide to persons desiring to petition the legislature for special privileges, and it would be a good answer to any petition for the granting of such privileges that the required notice had not been given; but it is not binding upon any subsequent legislature, nor does a noncompliance with it impair or nullify the provisions of an act passed without the requirement of such notice.”
Office of Minority Health?
I will bet 1 million bucks that this health care fiasco results in racial tensions in future years. It is a godsend to trial lawyers.
I bet that the white guy will lose the kidney transplant to the black guy. The liberal will get the heart transplant over the conservative guy. Wanna bet this is what we will face?
On the other hand, how much you want to bet that monorities sue for discrimination in health care when they get denied coverage?
Any arguments here to the contrary?
Seems like DeMint is speaking in an ancient tomb with the skeletal Dems barely paying attention. And the Dem in this case looks like a buffoon.
Reid has got to be the most ignorant, treacherous, most arrogant leech in U.S. history.
