i'm ready for my close up mr demille

Kentuckians: do you care about your Constitution

Location: Indianapolis, IN

Kentucky House Representative Ron Lewis (R, 2nd District) has introduced landmark legilsation that would broaden the powers of Congress by giving them the ability to reverse certain Supreme Court decisions.

Congress already has the power to approve/disapprove Presidential Court appointees as well as the power to amend the Constitutuion. Further broadening of this power is an affront to the American system of checks and balances and should not be allowed to pass.

I took the time to write Mr. Lewis this morning and share my concerns about this bill. If you live in the second district, or are represented by any of the bill's 11 co-sponsors, I suggest you do the same.

p.s. I haven't felt much like writing lately. Sorry.
