Senate Once Again Commits Act of Treason Against America

» Senate Dems Kill Effort to Rein in Czars The Speakers Lobby « “Under pressure from the White House, arguing separation of powers, Senate Democrats on Thursday employed a procedural tactic to kill an amendment that would have imposed congressional oversight on some 18 czars appointed by the Obama Administration, though not confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
The amendment to a spending bill that funds the Interior Department was sponsored by moderate Maine Sen. Susan Collins, top Republican on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee,who took to the floor to decry the move, saying she was ‘deeply disappointed’ that her colleagues would do this.
The measure would have withheld federal funds for the creation of any new, unconfirmed czar positions until the Administration agreed to allow the individuals to testify before Congress, if a ‘reasonable request’ was made, and every czar to produce a detailed ‘public, written report’ biannually of their actions and involvement in the creation of policy, rules, and regulations.
‘My amendment has been carefully tailored to cover officials that the President has unilaterally designated for significant policy matters. It would not have covered the President’s chief of staff, for example, and it would not cover less senior White House officials, despite some misinformation to the contrary,’ Collins said, noting that her staff had worked with White House officials Wednesday night without agreement.”

Even so, Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, D-IL used a Senate rule that prohibits legislating on a spending bill, something that is often done by both parties despite the rule, to kill the measure.

Stringing and Strowing says: Dick Durbin, treasonist, enemy of America. Make a note.
