  •  Super Congress? (0+ / 0-)

    It should be illegal to turn over such serious decisions to a small number of people who were never chosen by the American people for this job.   Where in the U.S. Constitution does it grant this power to anyone?  Seems to me that this is unconstitutional because all branches of the U.S. government can be overturned except the Supreme Court which in a way can still be overturned when a constitutional amendment is made.

    Where in the U.S. Constitution does it say that a small number of Senators and Congressmen shall have the power to cut the budget and that they cannot be overruled by anyone?  Isn't this unconstitutional?  After all, it gives this small group the power to enforce their decisions if Congress fails to do so.
