This guy has tried this for years. But there hasn’t been a Democrat President and Democrat House and Senate majority either. So it just might go through.

Laws and resolutions are one thing, and the socialists can certainly make things difficult by shutting out conservatives and republicans, but an amendment to the Constitution has to be passed by both houses of Congress and then be ratified by 3/4 of the states. I don’t think that the socialists could get 38 states to ratify. This safeguard to our Constitution isn’t a popularity item, even the sparcely populated states get an equal vote.

Read the Constitution. Such an amendment would require the votes of two-thirds the members in both houses and three-quarters of the state legislatures. My considered opinion is that the odds of such an amendment being ratified in my life time hovers somewhere between zilch point sh*t and none.
It isn't going to pass. Its probably not even going to make it on to the floor. Why the worry, other than the sycophantic Democrat Congresscritters that introduced it?
