James Madison’s system of checks and balances has been long dead, says SiriusXM Patriot’s Mike Church, who argued Tuesday that Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) newest proposed amendment, which would forbid government officials from holding themselves exempt from constitutional laws, “is not necessary because there is nothing in the federal constitution that would grant a member of Congress this exemption.”

“The abuse of power is not a Constitutional exercise” Church added, blaming its occurrence on the absence of a sufficient check on Congress. “The system that is supposed to prevent abuses from happening is kaput.”
