Law to Remedy the Distress of the People of the United States of America
The House of Representatives has enacted the following law, which is hereby proclaimed with the assent of the Senate, it having been established that the requirements for a constitutional amendment have been fulfilled:
In addition to the procedure prescribed by the constitution, laws of the Nation may also be enacted by the government of the United States. This includes the laws referred to by the Constitution.
Laws enacted by the government of the United States may deviate from the Constitution as long as they do not affect the institutions of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The rights of the Speaker of the Senate remain undisturbed.
Laws enacted by the United States’ government shall be issued by the Speaker of the House of Representatives and announced in the Congressional Gazette. They shall take effect on the day following the announcement, unless they prescribe a different date. Articles of the Constitution do not apply to laws enacted by the United States government.
Treaties of the United States with foreign states which affect matters of United States’ legislation shall not require the approval of the bodies of the legislature. The government of the United States shall issue the regulations required for the execution of such treaties.
This law takes effect with the day of its proclamation. It loses force four years from enactment or if the present United States’ government is replaced by another.
Is this for real? Could a law like this be proposed? Has one like this ever been proposed before anywhere? Did it pass? What sort of problems could lead up to this? Are any of these problems facing us today?
