Here is a classic case of a US Congressman totally willing to ignore our Constitution because he feels there is some more compellig issue or some higher cause. I guess he forgot his oath.
Are you surprised to learn he’s from the Illinois 17th District? Per his House web site he spent 13 years as a former union official in a garment factory, then 24 years as a political hack for former Congressman Lane Evans. He’s been playing the system for 37 years – his entire adult life, and been on either a union payroll [union dues] – or your payroll [taxes].
So when a musty old relic like the Constitution gets in his way of doing things “for the people”, – he just goes ahead and forgets his oath.
It’s called expediency – the justification of almost every dictator since the beginnings of history. Progressives have re-labeled it. They call it “finding practical solutions to real-world problems”. They’ve convinced themselves that they really are helping people. But nibble by nibble they’re shredding our Constitution – and with it our nation. Come November 2nd, we get to bite back!
