Betraying The Constitution?

I found this on Fox News.

http://foxforum.blogs.foxnews.com/2008/11/25/napolitano_1125_bailout/

Bailouts violate the Equal Protection doctrine because the Congress can’t fairly pick and choose who to bail out and who to let expire.

My head is spinning! It goes on to say this:

But history will be angry at them and their colleagues for betraying the Constitution. Their attitude underscores the reasons that the Constitution does not repose in the Congress the power to bail out individuals or private industry: Bailouts violate the Equal Protection doctrine because the Congress can’t fairly pick and choose who to bail out and who to let expire; they violate the General Welfare Clause because they benefit only a small group and not the general public; they violate the Due Process Clause because they interfere with contracts already entered into; and they turn the public treasury into a public trough. Worse still, Congress lacks the power to let someone else decide how to spend the peoples’ money.

This is the first time I have heard of this, sorry if this is old news. I all so have to say, I have not read anything but this news bite I so happend to come across. Since I am such a news geek I will be looking in to this more.
