The Ugly Reality of Centralized Government

Time for a reminder about the reason for the 10th Amendment.

The only thing “super” about the so-called budget control super committee is the size of lobbying muscle exerted on its members. Almost 100 registered lobbyists who are former employees of super committee members are now “representing defense companies, health-care conglomerates, Wall Street banks and others with a vested interest in the outcome of the panel’s work,” the Washington Post found in September. This includes two dozen former staffers to Democratic Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, including three former chiefs of staff.

The Ruling Class' Convention was held right there.

The national interest was sacrificed on that altar to Big Government.
