Conservatives are in a tizzy, lefties are excited. I think that those on the right have expressed a legitimate concern: is it Constitutional?
“The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States.”
Now maybe it’s the cranky strict constructionist in me, but to me, this says “this is how our government works, this is how the people in the House of Representatives get elected,” and the DC voting-rep-in-the-house bill doesn’t seem to pass Constitutional muster.
I haven’t seen any defenses of how it could be Constitutional. Admittedly, I haven’t looked too strenuously for a defense, but could someone please point me to one if it’s been explored?
Additionally, it’s been suggested that it will be difficult to find a plaintiff to bring standing to the court to contest the Act.
