Trimming Congressional Authority   Leave a comment

What would you say if an Article V convention proposed an amendment that stripped Congress of its law-making authority?

  • I’ve already said I would be in favor of increasing the number of representatives so that representation would be based on populations of around 50,000 — maybe up to 100,000, but no more than that because Congress can’t effectively represent huge Congressional districts.
  • I’ve already said I would be in favor of term limits for Congress and the Senate.
  • I’ve already said I would be in favor of repeal of the 17th amendment to return control of the Senate to the states.

I would like to see an immediate repeal of all legislative laws in the United States and henceforth, all laws that Congress proposes must be signed off by the legislatures of the states — at least three-quarters of them. Once ratified, they would sunset after 10 years if not resubmitted to the states.

Does that seem drastic? What do you think would be the outcome?
