Marianne Moran, believes that it’s time that states have the ability to fight back, Congress and the President have have pushed forward laws that most people in most states simply do not want. The new amendment would give us recourse.
A Tea Party activist is working to get state backing for a constitutional convention to pass a constitutional amendment that would give two-thirds of the states the ability to repeal congressional acts, such as the new health care law.
“It restores a lot of the sovereignty and a lot of the power that the states have lost,” said Marianne Moran, executive director of RepealAmendment.org and *former executive director of Tea Party In Action.
The Tenth Amendment has become useless because of Supreme Court decisions that have expanded federal power and because of the Seventeenth Amendment that stripped state legislatures of their right to name U.S. senators, Moran said.
This would go a long way toward reestablishing the balance of state rights against federalist power, and seems like an idea worth concidering.
