Republicans say they’ve found the problem in America — and that problem is the basic framework of the Union as we know it today.
A group of Republicans in the House and Senate are proposing an amendment to the Constitution that would allow a vote by two-thirds of the states’ legislatures to override any federal law they did not agree with.
Supporters of the so-called Repeal Amendment say that it was the 17th Amendment, added to the Constitution in 1913, that helped lead the country down the path of two much federal power. Tea partiers have suggested repealing the 17th Amendment, which allows for direct election of senators.
Because when you are elected to serve the people (stop laughing, that’s what they say, I swear) it makes a lot of sense to invest time and taxpayer money dismantling one of the core principles that the government you’re serving in was founded upon.
The executive director of the Repeal Amendment idiots is — I am not making this up — Marianne Moran.
