The John C. Calhoun Memorial Party
Eric Cantor is part of a class of Republicans who say they want to change the country fundamentally — and to that end, Cantor isn’t dismissing a plan by legislators in his home state of Virgina to blow up the Constitutional system and replace it with one that would give state governments veto power over federal laws.
The people pushing this idea are doing so with the purpose of negating the 16th and 17th Amendments (federal income tax and direct election of Senators). So they want an Amendment to overturn what they don’t like about other Amendments.
Great Eric, so how about this…rather than just use this on things like high tariffs and health care, states are allowed to withhold their National Guards from being used overseas?
Or maybe they can ignore the 13th Amendment and bring back slavery?
John C. Calhoun would definitely have gotten behind that one.
