Fine Legal Minds

After careful analysis, the Congressional Research Service has found that both HR 1586 and S 651 may violate Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution, according to Roger Russell, writing at WebCPA.

“The Congressional Research Service reached the conclusion that while certain aspects of the proposed taxing schemes may raise concerns under the Fifth Amendment and “ex post facto” clause, the strongest arguments against their constitutionality arise under the bill-of-attainder analysis.”

Excellent work by some fine legal minds, I’m sure. It took them only ten or so days to reach the same conclusion as this grandmother with a high school education who simply read the Constitution and applied some common sense.
