Apparently the Democratic House members aren’t all that happy with the Tea Party Representatives insistence that laws have a basis in the Constitution. Glenn gave his reaction to Rep. Sanchez’s latest statements on radio this morning.
You can hear Rep. Sanchez remarks in The Blaze video below (note her mocking Southern accent to describe Tea Party members):
Rep. Sanchex said:
“It is interesting because there are 89 new Republican members. About 80 of them defeated incumbents, Democrats. So, you know, I'll approach this as they won an election the same way I did, which is tough to win.
You know, to be a member of House, there are three requirements. You have to be a citizen for at least seven years. You have to be at least age 25 and you have to win an election. The tough part is winning an election. Okay. So, I give them credit for winning election. They got in the same way I did.
So, I'm going over. I'm sitting down with them. I'm introducing myself. I'm visiting with them. I'm trying to get -- you know, you have to form relationships in order for you to be able to pass legislation, but out of their mouths continue to come the same thing -- it's unconstitutional. Everything to them is unconstitutional. It's unconstitutional. It's unconstitutional. It's unconstitutional.”
“Not everything is unconstitutional. Things that are Constitutional are not unconstitutional. Healthcare is unconstitutional,” Glenn said.
“Many of the things this Congress has done prior to the 89 new members and this administration has done are unconstitutional! So, that's the problem and that's the reason you're hearing about it because it's Obamacare and it has been declared, what, three times now unconstitutional,” Pat said.
Stu pointed out what a positive change it is that the freshman Congressmen are actually sticking to the Constitution behind closed doors, not just in their speeches to their constituents.
“Can I tell you something? It is a new breed. It is. It has taken them over 100 years to breed the Constitution out of us, trying to make it a living, breathing document, everything that they started back in the turn of the century,” Glenn said.
