Is it proper to include language in a law passed by congress that prohibits congress from subsequent amendment?
Interesting question and one that might be answered sooner rather than later inasmuch as the current Senate bill on Health Care includes just such language in it. As of 12/23/09 it has already raised the interest of Consitutional Law scholars.

Some refer to an amendment that results in a change or addition that becomes part of the written language of the Constitution itself as a "formal amendment," but there is no such term. Amendments that have been proposed by both Houses of Congress jointly, and have gone through the formal process of ratification by two-thirds of the states become amendments to the Constitution.

The method of ratification is decided by the body that passes the amendment, which historically has been the US Congress (by 2/3 vote of both houses). In all but one case, the approved amendments were ratified by state legislatures. However, the language of the 21st Amendment (1933) specified its passage by state conventions rather than state legislatures. This was particularly chosen to avoid opposition by the same groups that had successfully lobbied for the passage… Read More

There are three major checks on the power of the Supreme Court, and all are maintained by the legislative branch. The first major check is that if the Supreme Court interprets a federal statute in a way that the Congress didn't intend, Congress can pass a new law that provides clarifying language. The second major check is that if the Supreme Court interprets a law as unconstitutional, the Congress can propose a Constitutional Amendment that… Read More
The Supreme Court interpreted the meaning of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments in a manner incompatible with the apparent intent of Congress in order to maintain the status quo of social order in the South. By declaring the Civil Rights Act of 1875 unconstitutional (e.g., Civil Rights Cases, 109 US 3 (1883)), denying Congress the right to enforce the Fourteenth Amendment (despite the language of that Amendment), and refusing to apply anti-discrimination laws to the… Read More
The Netherlands is the source of the official language of Suriname. Dutch speakers from the Netherlands began settling the subsequent Republic in the 17th century. The area previously had been explored by speakers of Spanish, French, and English in the 16th century. But it was English and then Dutch language speakers who settled the country which they linked to their respective homelands by way of plantation economies. In the aftermath of the Treaty of Breda… Read More

This may mean expanding constitutional rights (such as voting) to include groups that were previously excluded, or it may mean curtailing rights, depending upon the constitutional beliefs held by the majority of Supreme Court justices or by Congress. These changes often occur as the result of judicial decisions, usually by the US Supreme Court or by… Read More

None. The U.S. has no official language or religion. English is the most common language, as it was the primary language of the first Colonists. Likewise, Christianity is by far the most common religion, but to declare an official religion would violate the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

If the President signs it, it will then be a law, not an amendment. If the President doesn't sign it (vetoes it) it will go back to congress where it will need two thirds of a… Read More
Never. In order for an amendment to be properly ratified, it must be ratified in its EXACT language, by 3/5 of all of the states. While it seems that enough states did ratify a variation of the amendment in some form or another, it was never ratified in its exact language by enough states. This did not, however, prevent it from being added to the Constitution, and becoming de facto "law". It was never properly… Read More

Which group believed the language of Article 10 of the Treaty of Versailles contradicted the power of Congress to declare war?
I'm also struggling to answer this question for part of my summer assignment. I'm pretty sure that the 21st Amendment changes the language of the Constitution because it is repealing a previous amendment. I also think that the 17th Amendment possibly qualifies because it is changing the way Senatrs are elected. Im also fairly sure that the 13th Amendment changes language because it overturns the Fugitive Slave clause in Article IV. Possibly the 23rd, because… Read More
Witches are human. They are subject to the same rules and natural laws and you and I are. In the past, as today, witches spoke whatever language they learned as children and any subsequent languages they learned in their travels (if any). Many educated people of the past spoke their common/birth language as well as Latin and Greek. There was not then, nor is there now a "secret witches' language" nor do they communicate by… Read More
Break down the phrase by the definitions for each word. When you assign something, it passes into the other person's name. So if I buy your house, I am the assignee. Subsequent means later or after. So after me, perhaps my son inherits my house. So a legal statement that "all rights conferred to subsequent assignees", would mean "this assignee and all others who come later" receive the same rights. This kind of language is… Read More
The 11th Amendment by its plain language bars suits against states by citizens of other states or foreign citizens, but the Supreme Court in Hans v. Louisiana also construed the 11th Amendment to bar suits against states by its own citizens. That immunity can be waived or abrogated by the state itself or by the federal government in limited situations.
Did congress add language in the Obama Health Care bill that would exempt members of congress from it?
Not exactly. The members of congress are already exempt, but not because of anything wrong with the new Health Care law. They are exempt because they are covered under a separate insurance plan that is provided to all members of congress. So, they didn't need to be included under the Affordable Care Act.

When we as a culture decided that everyone should be allowed to vote, we had to change the language in the… Read More

what is problematic about the constitutions broad language relative to national security policy
The 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed, repealing the 18th Amendment, which outlawed trafficking in 'intoxicating liquors.' The 21st Amendment was passed in order to undo the 18th Amendment. In short, a constitutional amendment, or any law, is repealed when it is found unconstitutional. Aside from the obvious issue of public opinion (people wanted to drink), it is important to note that, by and large, the constitution does not create prohibitions or… Read More

Amendments can be proposed by a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress, which is the traditional way. Alternately, three-fourths of the states can petition Congress to call a convention to propose amendments, and Congress would be required to do so (this has never actually happened, and there are some gaps in the Constitution's language describing exactly how it would work).
