I think the problem here...is if you start to define bills by Constitutional authorization...then you can forget about half the stuff that they get involved in.
One wishes....that Jefferson had written a simple piece that dictated the Senate would only be in place from January through July, and we’d not have all this “Hollywood” mess all year round now. You’ve got folks now who can name more senators than they can name members of the St Louis Cardinals....and I think it’s major indicator of how much we’ve changed DC in the past two decades.
The Constitution was set up to be altered by amendment with a 3/4 majority. Not by whatever legislation can be passed or Court decision rendered. That is why we are in the mess we are in today. Instead of having a Civil War slavery should have been stopped by amendment. It would have been given time. They are moving too fast now and entangled in a web of legislation that is hard to Undo.
It's the Arizona Cardindals.
And we're intentionally trying to forget them! ; D
