The Super Congress amounts to an institutionalization of the gang structure that exists informally in the Senate, where a small number of lawmakers write legislation behind closed doors and then announce it to the public। Legislation written by the Super Congress would be extremely difficult for individual members of Congress to stop.
No wonder both liberals and conservatives hate the proposal.
Indeed, the Founding Fathers’ vision of prosperity has been destroyed – and we’ve gone from the “wealth of nations” to the “debt of nations” – at least in part because our political system has been subverted by non-Constitutional committees and entities.
For example, the country’s most powerful “agency” – the Federal Reserve – has admitted that its 12 member banks are private, not government entities.
