House Resolution 78

Emphasis mine.
Closing statement: In 1970 Tom Foley was quoted as saying that it was very clear that a Constitutional Amendment would be required to do this. It's backhanded, duplicitous, and dishonest of the Democrats to bring this forward and it's an attempt to try to get these delegates voting rights down the road.

Democrats' Unconstitutional Power Grab
To add insult to injury, non-members would be able to vote to raise taxes on the American people but would not have to pay them. Yes, that is not a misprint—non-members would have the ability to take more from your paychecks and not be held accountable for their actions. Residents of Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and Puerto Rico do not pay federal income taxes, yet the Democrat plan will allow them to hike taxes on Americans that do. It does not take a math whiz to understand that this logic does not add up.

Ethical Congress indeed.

Write your representative
