Hey GOP, ever wonder what it would be like to see the Founders spin in their graves?

Days before the March 1 deadline, Senate Republicans are circulating a draft bill that would cancel $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts and instead turn over authority to President Barack Obama to achieve the same level of savings under a plan to be filed by March 8.
The five- page document, which has the tacit support of Senate GOP leaders, represents a remarkable shift for the party. Having railed against Senate Democrats for not passing a budget, Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional “power of the purse” for the last seven months of this fiscal year.
As proposed, lawmakers would retain the power to overturn the president’s spending plan by March 22, but only under a resolution of disapproval that would demand two-thirds majorities in both the House and Senate to prevail over an Obama veto.

Of what use is a Constitution when one branch of govt doesn’t care about it, and a second views it as an impediment  to it’s action.
I am ready to work as hard as I can to run out ANYONE who votes in favor of this abdication of fiscal, and Constitutional  demand.
The people who are ready to do this have lost any sense of what is RIGHT.
