‘We the people’ to open next Congress
House to read Constitution
By Stephen Dinan The Washington Times
The Constitution frequently gets lip service in Congress, but House Republicans next year will make sure it gets a lot more than that – the new rules the incoming majority party proposed this week call for a full reading of the country’s founding document on the floor of the House on Jan. 6.
“If they follow through on it, it’ll create some very difficult conversations, because what they’ll end up doing is finding a lot of things already in place are unconstitutional,” Mr. Tarbutton said.
