Democrats introduce bill to ELIMINATE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Wouldn’t this be unconstitutional?

A Democrat in the House of Representatives has introduced a bill that will eliminate the Electoral College from the voting processes in the United States.

As reported by washingtontimes.com
A Democratic House member introduced two proposed constitutional amendments on his party’s first day in power, one of which would abolish the Electoral College.

Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat and a Judiciary Committee member, said in a statement that that proposal was inspired by his party’s defeats in two presidential elections in the past generation — Al Gore in 2000 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.

In those race “the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College. Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President,” Mr. Cohen said in his statement.

The other amendment proposal is also squarely aimed at President Trump — it would bar a president from pardoning himself or numerous close associates.

It apparently would not follow the custom — as did the 22nd Amendment limiting presidential terms, for example — of having the bipartisan gesture of a grandfather clause stating it would not apply to current office-holders.

“Presidents should not pardon themselves, their families, their administration or campaign staff. This constitutional amendment would expressly prohibit this and any future president, from abusing the pardon power,” he wrote.

    It appears Mr. Woods you have not read the constitution. Maybe you should and then retract your stupid Constitutional Amendments. You are just following the lead of the who ever is in charge that wants to destroy America. You Dems seem to be upset that our Constitution has worked for over 200 years and we now have a Businessman in the oval office who is not a politician. Someone who is trying to run our country like the giant business it is and not kowtowing to the few Dems who think they know best. By the way sir does your home have a fence or wall around it. IF so why. Maybe you don’t want someone coming onto your property you didn’t invite. So sir I would request you vote to fund the Wall. We did not invite now do we want 10’s of thousands of people coming into our great country with doing it the legal way. If you don’t support the wall take yours down and throw a party for anyone that may want to come in and take what they want and leave. Use some common sense to do your job. Don’t know exactly what your job is? READ THE CONSTITUTION.
