    Apparently the Constitution is about to be read aloud in front of the Congress for only the 2nd time in our history. The first time was in 2010.

    I would suggest that this should be done as part of the swearing in of every new Congress (if not more often).

    Congressman Daniel Webster



    "The U.S. House of Representatives read the U.S. Constitution aloud this morning to demonstrate the commitment of the 113th Congress to secure for future generations a constitutional government that is subject to the consent of the governed and protects every American’s God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

    It's a joke, a ruse. They don't abide by it in any way, shape, or form. They haven't and they still won't. This is an exercise in them helping to feel good about the horrible things they thrust on the American people.
