This idea is absolutely petrifying.

Quote:
Under the proposed “repeal amendment,” any federal law or regulation could be repealed if the legislatures of two-thirds of the states voted to do so.


Mostly due to the widespread desire to repeal health care, bc it's 'unconstitutional'. And there would definitely be enough states eager to disagree with most changes.

This can't possibly go horribly wrong! And god knows state legislatures are better judges of the constitutionality of laws than the entire judicial branch of the federal government!

Not going to happen though. Even if the state legislatures of the "purple states" swung in favor of the law, that still wouldn't come even close to the three-quarters of states necessary to ratify the amendment.

Don't put this on all of us. The biggest idiots often have the loudest mouths.

Didn't we already try this once? Didn't work out so well, as I recall.
