Our representatives in the House and in the Senate have made a mockery of our Constitution. The secret supercommittee -- around which have swirled all sorts of rumors about raising taxes and increasing regulations -- has effectively become the Congress. Once it reports whatever it has agreed to, Congress cannot debate that report. Congress cannot publicly discuss that report. Congress cannot amend that report. Congress can only vote that report up or down. This modern-day Privy Council has robbed you of your representation in government and the transparency guaranteed by the Constitution.
What can we do about this? We can continue to challenge the government, and we can throw out of office any member of Congress who favors secrecy over freedom.
