The Law Of The Land

Before, during and after the "government (partial) shutdown" over "Obamacare," Democrats kept shouting in indignation: "It's the law of the land!"  Even our very own Congressman, Brad Schneider (D-10th), sent out fundraising e-mails proclaiming "It's the law of the land!"

Democrats complained that repeated votes in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal "Obamacare" were improper, claiming Obamacare is now "the Law of the Land!"

Democrats have not been adverse to using the same indignation over any measure remotely touching other hot button issues, such as abortion. Abortion has for 40 years now, been "the Law of the Land!"

Any attempts at repealing laws favored by Democrats are labeled by them as being obstructionist and extremist.

Today is the fourth anniversary of the Supreme Court Decision of the Citizens United case, which evened the disparity in fund raising and campaign spending between Democrats and Republicans. For years, Democrats during campaigns have claimed a fundraising disadvantage to Republicans, even though Democrats routinely out raise Republicans. Democrats never want to talk about that.  

Since this decision, a number of Democratic fundraising groups using the Citizens United template have been formed. Democrats also don't like to talk about that.

Today, I am bombarded by e-mails from Democrats demanding donations to attack the Citizens United decision, attack Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers and your little dogs too. I found the first few pretty entertaining, the later ones became annoying.

So Democrats, concerning the Citizens United case, what part of "Its the Law of the Land" don't you get?  Tsk, tsk, tsk!

Sometimes blogging can be fun!

  1. The Affordable Care Act will remain the law of the land unless the Republicans elect a Congress in November that is veto proof. House Republican efforts (40+ bills) in the meantime to repeal the ACA are futile. In contrast, there is nothing futile about Democratic efforts to mobilize to pass a constitutional amendment that corporations are not people to override Citizens United.
