U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, took to the House floor Wednesday and declared the Constitution to be a 400 year-old document — six years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock.
“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.
The Washington Examiner’s web editor Justin Green tweeted:
