Rep. Justin Amash:

I never stop thinking about these sorts of things,” he told CNN. “It’s not because I have any immediate plans or anything like that, but I never stop thinking about those things because there is a big problem with the current two-party system we have, and someone has to shake it up.

Actually, some will say that Trump’s election is a shake up of the two party system. He is certainly not a conservative Republican it is arguable whether he is a Republican at all.

The problem with Congress is that it has become nothing more than an extension of the President’s “team.” Congress doesn’t exist as a separate entity and therefore does not fulfill is role as the second branch of government, and that is bad because Congress’ role is fundamental to the republican form of democracy created by the Constitution.

Oh, and by the way, a vast amount of what is claimed to be judicial overreach is also created by Congress not doing their job.
