The Super Congress: Taxation Without Representation

Preface: I am wholly non-partisan, and think that both Republicans and Democrats are missing the boat on the debt debate. Indeed, the Super Congress is a bipartisan idea, and thus both parties are equally to blame.

The top Democratic debt negotiators - President Obama and Senator Reid - as well as powerful Congressional leader Nancy Pelosi all said today that taxes may well be a part of the next phase of the debt package.

It would be one thing if Congress members and Senators who were accountable to the voters raised taxes which helped people.

But any tax increases enacted by the wholly-unaccountable "Super Congress" in order to fund (past and future) imperial wars of adventure and bailouts for the Wall Street fraudsters is taxation without representation.

This would especially be true if taxes hit the little guy, instead of the top .1% who have made out like bandits from the fraud-induced "great recession".


  1. Americans must be very proud. That and the ability to kill everyone on earth, is all they have left.

  2. Soon, you will be calling for violent revolution despite your typically hypocritical comment conditions.

    Revolutionary spirit!

  3. This 'SuperCongress' is yet another assault on the Constitution.

  4. The Super Congress is Obama's latest unconstitutional effort to work with Wall Street and the corrupt credit rating agencies of London to collapse the U.S. economy. This is a foreign-led British coup against the U.S. Constitution and our sovereign nation. It is unnecessary to sell government bonds to raise capital, when there is a clear directive of the Federal Constitution to have an economic policy based on a credit system. The U.S. government needs a credit system to directly fund the real physical economy in areas of agriculture, industry, transportation, and scientific research.
