  1. Government and (a) movement.

    I’m not really sure what the point of this is really. If enough voters are against a Federal law that they can get 2/3 of the state legislatures to vote in favor of a ‘state veto’ of the law then why wouldn’t that translate into enough voters in Congressional elections to change the law? In terms of increasing democracy the idea seems unnecessary to me. In terms of playing destructive games (such as vetoing a law that raised taxes to pay for an entitlement but keeping the entitlement) the idea seems poorly thought out.

  2. Boonton,
    Ask Mr Barnett @ Volokh. He’s the one pushing the idea.
