The Ultimate Pocket Constitution
Here’s a good idea.
H.R. 2854 would require the Treasury Secretary to redesign the $1 bill, incorporating the preamble to the Constitution, a list of the articles of the Constitution, and a list describing the amendments to the Constitution.
Just this weekend, a friend of mine told me of a lunch she had with some important personages including some members of the federal judiciary. My friend was the only one who carries a copy of the Constitution.
I don’t think you could get the entire constitution onto the $1 bill, but some basic information about the Constitution could give everyone – including federal judges – some important signals about our government’s constitutional structure and the limits on governmental power that help make our country so strong, dynamic, and free.
