    I'm not a Constitutional scholar, but it seems like this will effectively not allow some folks' voices to be heard. If the super-group are all old-school dems and GOP, they won't have the voice of the new Tea-party backed Congressmen. Republicans better take a strong look at their actions, especially crawling in bed with dems or they will be out just like their RHINO counterparts in the last election.

    Sooo many things come to mind from reading this.

    12 Politicians are easier to bribe, payoff, & outright BUY than 50-200+.

    Surely most the Congress Critters wouldn't vote to give their share of the power & bribes to a Elite Dirty Dozen???

    If Congress votes for this, I'ma buy stock in Petrochemicals & Chickens. Cuz there will be A LOT of Tar & Feathering when they come back home for their every couple years visits!!!

    Would the democrats ignore the Constitution...

    "If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees."
    William Jefferson Clinton, August 12, 1993

    "We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans . .."
    William Jefferson Clinton, USA Today, March 11, 1993

    "You know the one thing that's wrong with this country? Everyone gets a chance to have their fair say."
    -William Jefferson Clinton 5/29/93

    "The United States can't be so fixed on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans..."
    William Jefferson Clinton, March 1, 1993

    "When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly.... [However, now] there's a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there's too much freedom. When personal freedom's being abused, you have to move to limit it."
    William Jefferson Clinton
