Seriously…is it really that much to ask? It seems like basic knowledge of the Constitution and how it constrains their actions should be a prerequisite to service in Congress. Is that off base? Nancy Pelosi has, on more than one occasion, indicated she doesn’t know and doesn’t really care. She is not alone in her seeming lack of knowledge about the Constitution among our elected representatives on both sides of the aisle. Earlier this year Republicans in the House passed a bill that would have prevented us from paying Congress when there was no budget, something that is clearly Constitutionally prohibited. We need to reimpose the Constitution upon our elected representatives.
Here’s Minority Leader Pelosi once again demonstrating her ignorance. (Artwork courtesy of DonkeyHotey @ Flickr)
