Comment on Weigand re Commitment Period for Self-Employed Person

Jon: 

I read Weigand, and understand Judge Jury’s analysis.  Strict statutory construction controls. 

While I understand Judge Jury’s analysis, I felt completely let down by the BAP's conclusion that it was acceptable to treat sole proprietors differently from wage earners.  I found lacking the statement that “It may be that Congress simply did not want those persons generating significant revenues through a business to have access to three-year chapter 13 plans.”  Is this justification for discrimination under the law?
