Enumerated Powers Act

You'd think Congress would have the wisdom to check the United States Constitution to make sure that what they are trying to enact does not violate this sacred document. The legislature is made up mostly of lawyers who have probably has one or more classes in school on the Constitution. Guess they slept through those courses.

The Enumerated Powers Act, as defined in H.R. 450 and S. 1319, requires "Congress to specify the source of authority under the United States Constitution for the enactment of laws, and for other purposes."

Sixty members of the House are already cosponsors of H.R. 450. There are 22 cosponsors of S. 1319 in the Senate.

If you want to write your Congressman or Senator, the John birch Society makes it easy.
