    The power to regulate elections is reserved to the states per the 10th amendment. So the question really is, what's the Constitutional reason for violating that?

    People want jobs, not manufactured narratives.

    Alas, they're moving to Texas.
    Fenton, the GOP has cornered the stupid vote. So no worries there. False narratives? Hardly my friend. People do want jobs, and while neither party has done nearly enough to create them (and Republicans have done what they can to prevent the President from succeeding in creating them), it's the GOP that has voted almost 40 times to kill ACA (at $2 million a shot and knowing full well they can't do it), instead of coming up with jobs bills. And, yes, Dems are moving to TX and they and other demographic changes may just turn TX into a Blue state ... not alas, but rather at last ...

    It discarded a law passed in 2006 that was never relevant.

    Why is the government refusing to follow the ND model where concentrating on domestic energy has resulted in an economic boom to the state and now has even Walmart competing for employees to the tune of $17/hr starting wages? There are a number of areas where the government can encourage economic growth without spending a dime to do so...

    Good afternoon bj. I trust the wedding went well..

    Protecting the 14th Amendment rights of the voters to equal protection under the law would be my first guess. I'm sure there was a 15th Amendment aspect as well.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    the voting rights act was never relevent? the people who took part in the Selma to Montgomery voting rights march would disagree with you.

    They are not in any way equal. Membership / election go by entirely different methods, and their respective jurisdictions or functions are not equal.

    We tried that already. "Stimulus" was a miserable failure.
    to the degree that it failed to do more, the stimulus, a joint Republican/Democrat venture, still prevented us from sliding into Bush's depression. Are you sure it's the other poster who lacks "economic knowledge?" What the real failure has been has been GOP House members committing themselves to making sure that Obama fails, and screw the rest of us ... a rather short-sighted view, and it cost them the election in 2012 ... the people were actually paying attention ...
