    • Are you saying that Article 1, Section 7 isn't Constitutionally defensible?
      • I think it is. That's the process I believe that I reference.

        • The House is doing its job, and funding the government where it has the votes to pass something. The Senate is stalling, and that's Harry 'the Cadaver' Reid's pleasure.

              Section 2. The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
              Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.
