Senate Rules Change for the Worse

Posted on December 22 2009 5:08 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

As an American citizen, I will be damned before I sit idly by and watch any portion of our elected legislative branches yield Congress’s power and the rights of American citizens in domestic affairs to unelected bureaucrats, the names and backgrounds of whom we may never truly know, let alone vote for, or against directly. Not without reasonable oversight. And what these rule changes do is take away any reasonable oversight by the deliberative branches of government.

Ultimately, I believe this effectively bestows sole authority for important aspects of domestic policy unto the Executive Branch.
