Response to PoliticAverse (Reply #10)

14. There were actual arguments by those opposed to it that

indicated that the passage of time had been too long and they should have started all over.

If you research a bit, there was supposedly a college student who became a 1-man advocate for passage of that 27th Amendment declaring it "live", and he was generally dismissed... Meaning at the time (and all those years prior), those who could have actually moved it along to completion, had considered it null and void - until a rash of Congressional pay raise enactments began to hit the news.

And as a note, Congress can declare whatever they want when they want including "Stopping the clock" (one of the Riddick's Rules).
