The $700 Billion Bailout is Corporate Welfare and is Unconstitutional.

Judge Andrew Napalitano, former constitutional law professor, October 29, 2008, Fox News, B Studio

"It is clear that the framers wrote a constitution as a result of which contracts would be enforced, risk would be real, choices would be free and have consequences, and private property would be sacrosanct."

In the United States, the oath of office for the President of the United States is specified in the U.S. Constitution (Article II, Section 1):

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

At the start of each new U.S. Congress, in January of every odd-numbered year, those newly elected or re-elected Congressmen - the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate - must recite an oath:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

This oath is also taken by the Vice President, members of the Cabinet, and all other civil and military officers and federal employees other than the President.
