Every now and then, the Tea Party gets it right. The New York Times today reported that the Tea Party is on a quest to repeal the 17th amendment.
I think the quest to repeal the 17th amendment needs to go further. Senators and members of the House sho1tld1 be elected by their respective state legislatures. It’s the first step toward scaling back the federal government to its basic responsibilities: protect the general welfare, promote commerce, provide national security.
I’d prefer we save a billion dollars a year by getting rid of the House of Representatives.
