In Congress, the Democrats are pushing a lot of bills that expand the President’s capacity to set standards for and control management of quite a few major components of the economy and individual lives. There’s HR 4173, which would allow the President and his appointees to liquidate any company they deem a “danger” to the economy. There’s HR 3590, which would make the purchasing of insurance deemed “satisfactory” by the President and his appointees mandatory. There’s HR 2454, which would allow the President and his appointees to determine how much carbon dioxide you can emit. There’s the proposal to institute national age-based education standards which would be set by…you guessed it- the President and his appointees.
I have to ask: If the Democrats feel it’s so important to expand executive power in all these sectors, why not just combine it all into one sweeping bill that accomplishes all of their goals in one fell swoop? Here’s my proposal for a draft of the bill:
Comprehensive, Systematic Takeover of Everything I Think I Can Run Better than You Act.
Sec 1000. Definitions
a) Entity – Any corporation, business, organization, group, individual, or practice which is determined by the President to not be running the way the President deems to be of most benefit to everyone.
Sec 1001. Extension of Presidential Powers
a) At the President’s request, a committee shall be formed to investigate the status, actions, structure, and any other qualities of any Entity. This committee will deliberate with the President to determine what corrective actions are necessary. Corrections shall be applied immediately upon the request of the President.
b) Actions by the committee shall be subject to judicial review, evaluating the extent to which the actions are actually corrective.
There. Simple, sweeping, and effective. So, to all the statists out there, would you support such a bill? What happens when the Republicans take the White House? Do you still support it then?
