No evidence that McNerney understands and follows the US Constitution

Original post made by Paul on Sep 17, 2010

To Chet (a PR rep for McNerney),

In an earlier posting, you stated that...

"It is one of our Congressman Jerry McNerney jobs to understand our Constitution. He does that job very well ..."

Given the above, can you please check with your buddy, Jerr, and report back to this PW Town Forum specifically where in the US Constitution it allows the Federal Government to ...

- REQUIRE American citizens to purchase health insurance (which McNerney voted for in Obamacare while not allowing ANY public forum for discussion with him present to hear us)???

This is very important. I'd like to hear from him...since he "understands" the Constitution so well.

I have a few more Constitutional questions regarding how McNerney can rectify other Democrat decisions ...like...

- where does the Constitution give the President the authority to FIRE a private sector employee (e.g. GM President)?

- How do you...Mr. McNerney...justify voting for the "FAIRNESS Doctrine" and the DISCLOSE ACT when these violate the 1st Amendment of allowing Free Speech? You merely want to shut down opposition media!

Chet buddy...I'll settle for an answer to just one of the questions above...and won't hold my breath.

McNerney couldn't care less about our Constitution...unless he happens to be out of toilet paper.

As you should expect your trash comments do not deserve any answer.

Chet,
All of my questions are very legitimate...and vitally important if we want a US Congressman who RESPECTS and ADHERES to the US Constitution!

Your unwillingness to provide an answer to any of my questions...especially the following is VERY REVEALING!

(The answer is that he knows the US Constitution doesn't allow for this but he doesn't care one iota.)


Where in the US Constitution does it allow the Federal Government to ...

- REQUIRE American citizens to purchase health insurance (which McNerney voted for in Obamacare while not allowing ANY public forum for discussion with him present to hear us)???

You are despicable, Chet...as is the expletive deleted McNerney.

I think that lots of folks feel entitled. However, just because you believe that your questions are legit doesn't necessarily mean that the person they're directed at agrees that your questions warrant a response. Maybe he responded by saying uh-huh, uh-huh...now lets moveon.com!

It could be that he is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy tired from working that he just doesn't have the time to pay attention to you. tee hee hee, eeh eeh eet...

catcha later porker...

Paul,

Where does the constitution say it was OK to bailout failed Wall Street firms? Can you please check with your hero, Sara Palin where she finds that in the constitution?

Cholo, easy buddy. For they do not know what they do...

Representative McNerney is likely one of the best we have had for the last two decades. What they, the opposition, hold against him is that he is a Democrat. They do not care what he has done for our Veterans, for example.

The fact that some Republicans endorse him is of little consequence to the close-minded far right. All they care about is winning at all costs...even if the United States suffers for it.

They provide obstructionist tactics to solutions.

There are a lot of things that aren't in the Constitution; the central banking system, for example. The right to privacy. And then, of course, there were things that were changed in the Constitution for obvious reasons... *coughslaverycough*

My point here is that if you're going to argue that anything that isn't in the Constitution is unlawful, you're going to hit a few minor snags...

Read, regarding "that anything that isn't in the Constitution is unlawful," is strict interpretation. Therefore, only white males owning property shall vote. Slavery is perfectly acceptable. Women voting?? no way!

So, you and Scalia were saying?
