The GOP's New Constitutional Amendment: Give States Veto Power Over Federal Laws

So, the new-GOP doesn't simply want to undo all the good created by the New Deal -- they want to undo the Civil War too?

Looks like it.

Republicans say they've found the problem in America -- and that problem is the basic framework of the Union as we know it today.

A group of Republicans in the House and Senate are proposing an amendment to the Constitution that would allow a vote by two-thirds of the states' legislatures to override any federal law they did not agree with.

The proposed constitutional amendment, a tea party favorite, is being touted by Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) in the Senate and co-sponsored by Sens. John Barasso (R-WY) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT). In the House, Reps. Rob Bishop (R-UT), Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Paul Broun (R-GA) are leading the charge.

Where is your compassion for those of us that don't want to be FORCED to purchase a commercial ins. product through Obamacare?

Oh, I forgot, liberals only protect "choice" when it comes to killing unborn children.

The Republican bill is a good one.
