I want to apologize to those of you who were reading my series on the Constitution and the other posts I’ve put up, especially those who were actually waiting around/checking in to see if I had posted another update. I appreciate your support, sharing, retweeting, etc. I tried to keep up my content production throughout [...]
I have reviewed Article 2 and I think this part is going to be frustrating. I will really try over the next week or so to stay on topic. As evidenced by my inability to keep away from the executive branch in my discussions on Article I, it is obvious the presidential election and the [...]

Revenues, Vetos, & Overrides, Oh My!
“Section 7. All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented [...]

“Article I. Section 1. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. Section 2.
