Illinois Congressman: “I Don’t Worry About The Constitution” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2iiirr5KI8...player_embedded
|A Democratic Congressman from Illinois told his constituents that he does not worry about the constitution when it comes to the health care bill signed into law last week by the president, before misquoting from the Declaration of Independence and claiming he had read the 2700 page legislation three times.|
“You care more about that than the U.S. Constitution, which you swore to uphold?” one of the constituents asked.
“I believe it says we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Hare fired back, before someone else in the room corrected the Congressman, noting that that line is found in the Declaration of Independence.

But he took an Oath when he became a Congressman to uphold it! So he has violated his Oath of office like many in Congress!
This guy needs to be voted out of office for being yet another fool. He doesn't understand the Oath he took, and that the law applies to him also.
Quit electing numbskulls like this. They can be lied into doing anything their party leader tells them, as long as it's twisted into something that sounds good!
Start asking your reps running for office if they have read the Constitution and will they uphold it if elected. Give them a pocket Constitution and insist they read it and study it! :rolleyes:
He lost his seat in Congress in Mid Term 2010, and deservedly so. He said in video above, he doesn't care about the Constitution. SO HE GOT THE BOOT!
