Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee

Cheerleader for the Statist in Chief Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, (D-Texas) says President Obama should extend unemployment benefits and the payroll tax cut by Executive Order. Or, put more accurately by Presidential Decree.

(The Hill) - Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Tuesday that President Obama "absolutely" should use his executive power to continue the unemployment benefits and payroll tax cut extension and said she hoped to discuss the option with the White House later in the day.

"It is extraordinary, don't get me wrong. But I'm feeling the pain of the constituents I left [at] home," Jackson Lee said, speaking on the progressive Ed Schultz's radio show. "I consider this a crisis. I consider leaving Americans without unemployment insurance for January and February a crime. I consider not extending the payroll tax cut ... a crime."

Jackson Lee slammed the move by House Republicans to call for a House-Senate conference as a "ridiculous procedural calamity."

House Republicans called for a vote on the motion Tuesday, which passed without any Democrat votes. {Read More}

For some the exercise of power {as corrupt as it may be} is more important that recognizing that our democratic republic and the rule of law must prevail. If we are to retain the liberties in inherent in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

When the foundation crumbles so will go the rule of law and liberty as we have known it for well over two and a quarter centuries.
