House Votes To Sue President For The First Time In History
Here’s a purely rhetorical question, because it makes too much common sense for the government to actually acknowledge the hypocrisy and give us a direct, non-convoluted answer:
WE the people– the constituents– can’t sue the government:
“Sovereign immunity has carried over to modern times in the form of a general rule that you cannot sue the government — unless the government says you can.” (source)
In the United States, the federal government has sovereign immunity and may not be sued unless it has waived its immunity or consented to suit. See Gray v. Bell, 712 F.2d 490, 507 (D.C. Cir. 1983). The United States as a sovereign is immune from suit unless it unequivocally consents to being sued. (Wikipedia)
Well, these douchebags would never consent to us suing the collective pants off of them, (I mean, these are the same guys who get to vote on their own paychecks) but they can sue the President? Doesn’t he get “sovereign immunity?” Well, Congress, especially the Republican party, has done their best to block his every move in regards to this healthcare debacle anyway. But regardless of whether or not you support the healthcare bill, these jokers in Congress do not have best interests of the majority of their constituents in mind. (Those interests were already bought and paid for by the lobbyists and 1%.)
I call bullshit. I think the whole lot of them should be kicked out on their overpaid keisters. Or maybe the President can counter-sue for Treason. The whole congressional process is a is a fucking joke now anyhow.
*grumble grumble* I’m going to go eat some damn ice cream now.
