Newly sworn Republicans read aloud the country's founding document today, reading all the amendments they agreed with, however, they DID NOT recite every verse and article of the document because these Republicans decided that the obsolete parts AND the parts they don't LIKE can be skipped. For instance, lawmakers did not read the 18th Amendment, which imposed prohibition on liquor in 1919. However, they did read the 21st Amendment, which repealed prohibition in 1933 and is still in force.
Republicans also left out the part of the Constitution about counting slaves and Native Americans as three-fifths of a person. However, according to the RULES, portions of the U.S. Constitution are never deleted. They can ONLY be amended!!
Two Republicans did NOT even show up! Instead they went to a PARTY! When reporters asked them about it, they said they were "OK" because they swore in on TV!!Does that work? If you watched the ceremony on TV, are YOU now a Congressman?
And get this, a Republican BIRTHER interrupted them through the reading! LOL!
And I did NOT even mention the 14th Amendment! They read the Constitution on the floor DEMANDING everyone ABIDE by the Constitution -- This while racist/extremist Rep Steve King proposes to Change the 14th Amendment - Birthright Citizenship!What is it with these wackos???
They read the portions of the Constitution they LIKE!
They didn't read the portions they didn't like!
They are attempting to change these portions, YET they say ABIDE BY IT!!
Republicans! They truly are a disgrace to America and to our Founding Fathers!!
