Will Kentucky lawmakers keep their oath to preserve the Constitution, protect their constituents?

Brooke Rollins, President & CEO of the Texas Public Policy Foundation made this prediction regarding Sunday's assault on Americans' freedom via health care legislation in Washington:

"The president and congressional leaders have said they know better than the American
public—dismissing public opposition in the name of socializing our health care
system, betting that the public will support their efforts once the bill has passed.
But they are wrong and will quickly see that they have stirred an anger that will
only grow, as people recognize their freedoms are slipping away."

Rollins may be right. But Kentucky legislators should take no chances.

A proposal in the Kentucky House to protect citizens from federal government health care and insurance mandates has been stuck in the Banking and Insurance Committee since Jan. 26.

Now, just after the big-government goons in Washington beat up liberty and freedom, would be an opportune time for Kentucky lawmakers to preserve the Constitution they swore to uphold and defend the constituents they pledged to protect.

Of course, Washington's ruling thugs long ago trashed the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution they swore to uphold. And the wishes of their constituents? They were never considered.
