Hey, I was wanting to do a poll regarding constitutional amendments. Currently our system is setup where Congress only has to confirm an amendment with 2/3rds vote in both chambers and that’s it.
I’m proposing the idea of adding an additional requirement where a referendum is also required before an amendment can go into effect. This would add a new check onto Congress to ensure legislation isn’t passed that only benefits Congress and may hurt other entities. Like I stated before, Congress only needs 2/3rds vote in each chamber with no oversight anywhere else (besides like fed but ignore that for now).
Do you think this should be implemented?
- Add a Referendum Requirement for Constitutional Amendments
- Keep it how it is
