Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code defines the oath that each member of congress takes at the beginning of every session of congress.
It reads: “I, [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
In addition to taking the oath orally they must sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath. A copy is held by the clerk of the house.
I wonder how many of them have even read our Constitution.
Article V provides two methods that can be used to amend the Constitution. Evidently some consider that to be too much trouble when they can get away with ignoring what the Constitution says.
An oath is a solemn promise.
I’ve learned that liars make the best promises.
We deserve better
