Wonderboy's Budget Solution- Another Unelected Panel

Somewhere within Wonderboy's budget speech last week, given in reaction to Paul Ryan's 2012 budget, was the inclusion of yet another unelected governmental body to handle what our elected Congress should do.

Essentially, in order to be able to have taxes raised without Congressional action, he wants a special panel established that will take measures to close budget deficits. You can bet that, if a Democrat is in the White House, the measures will rely more on tax increases than on spending cuts.

This, to me, is the most insidious and egregious element of the First Rookie's budget. Hasn't it been enough to have some 15 unelected 'czars' in this administration? I don't approve of them in any administration of either party.

But this latest invention is without question the most harmful to our Constitution? How on earth can a president propose an unelected panel to do what Congress is elected to do? If Congress doesn't have the will or ability to pass fully-funded budgets, so be it. Then voters will elect one that does.

But there's absolutely no place in our federal system for an unelected, appointed panel to suddenly become the last word on tax and spending policies. I can't even believe it's Constitutional, but shame on Wonderboy for even suggesting it.

If you doubted his desire to damage our country, look no further than this invention of his. It's completely antithetical to our form of government.
