(CNSNews.com) – Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) launched a new initiative in Congress Wednesday, described as a “network of House and Senate conservatives working together on a new agenda of government reform” that “focuses on congressional rehabilitation,” based on the original powers vested in Congress by Article 1 of the Constitution.

“The premise of the Article 1 Project is very simple,” Lee said at an event at the Kirby Center in D.C. “Congressional acquiescence is at the very heart of the problems that we face in Washington.”



Lee said the Constitution’s authors made Congress “the most powerful of the federal government’s three co-equal branches.”

“Congress was designed both as the most powerful and as the most accountable to the people,” he said. “Congress has handed many of its constitutional responsibilities over to the executive branch.”

As a result, “increasingly harmful federal laws are increasingly written by people who never stand for election, by a process as contrary as those provided for in the Constitution and indeed with the explicit purpose of excluding the American people from their government and shielding policymakers from popular accountability.”


“Congress has recast itself as the back seat driver in American politics,” Lee said. “Today the vast majority of federal laws, upwards of 95 percent, are passed not by the House and Senate and signed by the president but instead they’re imposed unilaterally by unelected executive branch bureaucrats.”

“At the same time Congress’ budget process is almost entirely broken down,” he added.

When Lobbyists Literally Write The Bill
I have thought of that, realizing how corrupt our politicians are. And, to make matters worse, the president
bypasses Congress where, if by chance the change in the law, written by the executive branch and their lobbyists could possibly have been voted down by congress.

We should make a law, that every politician has to have an accounting of their financial assets before their term in office and afterwards to uncover the "pay offs" they possibly received while in office.

"Constitutional rehabilitation project." Good grief. Do these teabaggers fondle each other's buttholes when they're coming up with this stuff?
Almost as good as Operation American Spring

Agreed. If congress doesn't pass it, it is not law. This is way number 2 to stop unelected clowns from making society the way they want it to look with no consequence to them. Way number 1 is just dismantle these bloated agencies like Perry wanted to do, and Cruz will do. Explains why lefties despise Cruz more than Trump!
