Invest in precious metals say two of the people that I read regularly. One of them is talking about Silver and Gold and the other is talking about Brass and Lead. I’m trying to decide now, which of them is most correct.
With democrats losing the fight on healthcare they’re digging hard to find new ways to pass a bill that they don’t have the votes for. Now, they’re approaching a threshold that is scary. Very scary. The are on the brink of an abyss unlike any seen in this country for decades and are blindly pushing ahead.
Democrats, without the votes to pass the healthcare bill are working to discover ways to pass the bill without having to vote on anything. The constitution, of course, says that they can’t do that but “house rules” say that they just might be able to. I’m not sure when “house rules” overrode the constitution but Nancy Pelosi seems to believe that she can do it.
Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution says that in order for a "Bill" to "become a Law," it "shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate." but democrats are claiming that they can do that without voting. So, we’re passed partisan politics. We’re past reconciliation being misused. We’re past strong-arming and threatening votes out of people. We’re past, even, buying votes with billions of dollars of your money and we’re straight into executive/royal decree. The statement that “this shall be because it shall be.”
The WSJ article finishes up by saying, “Democrats are, literally, consuming their own majority for the sake of imposing new taxes, regulations and entitlements that the public has roundly rejected but that they believe will be the crowning achievement of the welfare state. They are also leaving behind a procedural bloody trail that will fuel public fury and make such a vast change of law seem illegitimate to millions of Americans.”
I don’t know what form that “public fury” will take but I know that some people think that they know and I know that they might be right.
All I know is that I’m investing in “precious metals” just to be safe.
