US Constitution

Constitutional Reform?

There has always been much discussion (dispute) about what the U.S. Constitution — the supreme law of the United States — actually means.  Although many have stressed out about its interpretation, most of the Constitution is pretty clear.  It’s written in modern English!  Many others have pointed out that gaping holes do exist.   The 232 year old document was deliberately drafted lean with Congress expected to fill in with Federal law.  For instance, there has been discussion recently about the Supreme Court, particularly concerning its exact complement.  Democrats have complained that Mitch McConnell has effectively “packed” the courts by denying President Obama’s appointments and is now “fast tracking”  Trump’s.  A possible solution has been suggested that would add new members if and when Democrats regain the White House and Senate at the same time thereby “unpacking” the Supreme and lower courts.  In the past, particularly during the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, Republicans have complained that this sort of change was “unconstitutional” and couldn’t be done for purely political reasons.
