Congress steps up its Un-Constitutional Acts under the guise of Outrage

A very bad bill went through both houses of the Congress because they did not read the language.

The President signed it into law without reading the language.

So, now, in an effort to create outrage, in order to distract the public from more bad plans in the Congress, they have passed a bill in the United States House of Representatives that will take a big thick black permanent marker to The United States Constitution.

Article I Section 9:
No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.

That means that the Congress cannot retroactively rewrite the terms of a contract.

That means that if it has already happened, and it was legal when it happened, it can not be retroactively made illegal.

Yet, the Congress wishes to retroactively tax a legal, contractual payment after the fact. A payment that was expressly approved in the great big bill that no-one read, except the guy that wrote that provision, Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT).

What else will they go after ?

How far will they be allowed to go before we stop these attacks on The United States Constitution ?!?!?!?!?
