The Republicans have vowed that they will return to the Constitution when the 112th Congress convenes. They plan to read the Constitution out loud on January 6, and to cite the constitutionality of any new bill. Whether it’s just a gimmick remains to be seen, but it’s nice to at least see lawmakers acknowledge the law they swear to uphold. See the video below.
Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein sneers at the idea. He believes it’s just a gimmick. He said the Constitution is just too old and confusing and has no binding power because different people interpret it differently. That’s how liberals view the Constitution.
