Opponents Of Debt Hike to be Barred From “Super Congress”

Senators who voted against the debt ceiling hike will be barred from being on the panel of the unconstitutional “Super Congress,” as the Washington elite ensures all roadblocks to crippling tax increases and other planned assaults on the constitution are removed.

According to The Weekly Standard, Republican sources have confirmed that the likes of Rand Paul, Jim DeMint and other fiscal conservatives will be dismissed as choices for the new super committee partly as a punishment for their failure to back the debt hike and most importantly to prevent any obstacles to the committee passing tax hikes and entitlement cuts.

“Excluding those who vote against the debt deal will ensure that some of the most fiscally conservative members of the Senate Republican caucus, including most of its freshmen, will be reading about the committee’s activities in the newspaper rather than guiding its decisions,” writes Stephen F. Haynes.

“Among those who have already declared their opposition to the deal: libertarian-leaning senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul; Jim DeMint, the aggressive fiscal hawk from South Carolina; conservative reformers Ron Johnson from Wisconsin and Pat Toomey from Pennsylvania; the ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee, Jeff Sessions; and Florida’s Marco Rubio, already one of the highest-profile conservatives in Congress.”

Despite Mitch McConnell, who will make the selections for the panel, promising that the committee won’t raise taxes, immediately before voting began on the debt bill today Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) promised that “painful” tax increases would be enacted by the committee or that automatic triggers will kick in which mandate spending cuts of at least $1.2 trillion.

In addition, the Obama administration has already indicated that it will take the deciding vote as the de facto 13th member of the Super Congress. During his press briefing yesterday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the government would work with the Super Congress to hike taxes in 2012 and beyond.
