The provision, signed into law in October, weakens two obscure but important bulwarks of liberty. One is the doctrine that bars military forces, including a federalized National Guard, from engaging in law enforcement. [emph. added]
Most likely the change was published, but no one bothered to check to make sure they didn't slip anything in there.
A tiny little addition to a bill in confrence comitte that had already been passed in the house and senate. Why should you be able to change bills after they've been passed.
And ultimately, doesn't this seem to take responsibility off of the people who VOTE for the bill? Because no matter who wrote what part of the bill, it doesn't mean anything until somebody votes for it, and you can't say to your constituents -- don't look at me, I just voted for the damn thing, Spector wrote the part about banning Harry Potter from schools!
The only solution is a major overhaul of the Congressional branch. We should return to the time when Senators were appointed by their State.
