My friends and I recently discussed. . .

March 18, 2010

. . .why the Democrats would find the “deemed” passing of the Senate Bill to be better than actually voting on it. Tony Blankley explains why in this opinion piece, which states two basic reasons, which he argues runs directly against what the Constitution says.

“It is those two provisions of the Constitution that would be evaded: 1) the House vote, with the names and votes of the individual members publicly published, and 2) the president’s signature. That is James Madison’s precise 18th century version of transparency and accountability.”

I don’t know if he’s right, but if he and anyone is paying attention, this ought to provoke a Constitutional crisis. In a prior discussion I averred that we were on a slippery slope to Banana Republic status. I was mostly joking, but now I’m not so sure.
