You can read the rest of this editorial, which implicitly endorses DAS UBER CONGRESS, yet reading between the lines it becomes clear that DAS UBER CONGRESS is as much of pawn for the banking sector as it is for the military defense complex, and in fact it may be the real reason Boehner, McConnell, Obama, Reid and Harkins (along with other unseen conspirators) crafted this very unconstitutional act.
Senator Jon Kyl made news this week by telegraphing in advance the tantrums he would throw -- including resignation from his responsibilities as a member of the so-called "supercommittee" - if the Congressional group pushes for more defense cuts.
It's unclear whether Kyl will tolerate the $350 billion in cuts slated for the next ten years already called for by President Obama -- or whether he is talking about cuts above this amount.

Comment: The US Senate was created to provide a tremendous "check and balance" to thwart the domination of a majority, the House, Executive and Judicial Branch, and special interest. With the enactment of the 17th Amendment we can clearly see how the majority has been used to enlarge the power and scope of Executive Branch and special interest. Now with DAS UBER CONGRESS's foundation being laid firmly, and without even the slightest peep of denouncement from the remnants of our media or the American public, the conditions are being laid for a fascist government. Actually, the truth is since World War II we have moved steadily toward this state and DAS UBER CONGRESS is only part of the continued advancement, albeit a major one.
