Our Incompetent Government - Congress

One of the great things about the way our government works is that if a law is passed that is later discovered to be flawed, it can be repealed. This applies even of the law is an amendment to the Constitution, e.g. Prohibition.

Found at The Weekly Standard, Reid Bill Says Future Congresses Cannot Repeal Parts of Reid Bill

On page 1020 of the bill we find,
16 SUBSECTION.—It shall not be in order in the
17 Senate or the House of Representatives to con
18 sider any bill, resolution, amendment, or con
19 ference report that would repeal or otherwise
20 change this subsection.
Read the post linked above at The Weekly Standard for Sen. Jim DeMint's comments.

Every graduate of a high school civics course (from back in the days when high schools had civics courses) would know how wrong headed and dangerous this is.
