Democrats distort powers vested in US Senate in healthcare debate

Republican Jim Demint (S.C.) points out the rubbish in the bill as the Democrats have their ugly way:

One such rule DeMint read, regarding subsection C in Section 3403, states: "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."

"This is not legislation, it's not law," said DeMint. "This is a rule change. It's a pretty big deal. We will be passing a new law, and at the same time creating a senate rule that makes it out of order to amend or even repeal the law."

The US Congress represents the people. The people can change the laws. No laws are beyond the scope of the people. The only provisions that cannot be revisited are those defined by the US Constitution, and the people can change those as well.

What a bunch of assholes.
