Ah, but the dems are working on that too.

Democrats’ Unconstitutional Power Grab
by Rep. Tom Price (More by this author)

Posted: 01/23/2007
Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will be considering a rule change (H. Res. 78) to allow delegates and non-members of the House—of which four of five are Democrats—to vote in the House of Representatives.

Fresh off a 100-hour agenda that was full of loopholes, fine print, and geared more toward sound bites than sound policy, Democrats are planning to further stack the deck in their favor in the House of Representatives. Tomorrow, House Democrats will change the rules of the House to allow non-members of Congress (serving as delegates from American Samoa, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the District of Columbia and the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico), the right to vote.

I’m pretty sure that bill said that if the vote of the non-voting delegates changed the outcome, a new vote without them would need to be taken. So the non-voting delegates could never cast a deciding vote.

If it didn’t, the bill is clearly unconstitutional. As written, it’s probably unconstitutional, but likely can’t be brought to court.
