Are we all agreed? Democrats AND Republicans?
RBG should step down.
Congress would have to pass a new ERA. Isnt going to happen.
The women lose, the game timed out
They must start over
Congress imposed a 1982 deadline on states hoping to ratify the ERA.
The House is about to vote to rescind it. Does the Senate have to also? Any freepers know? If you think the LBGT is destroying the culture now if the ERA became law it would make what is going on now look like the 50’s. Not even churches would be safe harbor.
Extra credit for using those two words in the same sentence
If this deadline were to be found invalid, is it possible that under such finding, other less palatable unratified amendments would still be pending? Could that be the motivation for her sudden experiment with sanity.
Heck, if it had passed in ‘77 there would have only been 2 sexes protected.
If they restart it today, there will be how many, 36?

Good luck getting the ERA ratified without the alphabet soup of special interests claiming they also need to be equally protected
Well, for whatever reason, she’s right here.
How do you extend the deadline, then cover for the five states that withdrew their support?
If anything is to happen, they do need to start over.
IMO < the Constitution already provides grounds for equal rights. I don’t like to see special interest groups pile on things as if they are new, when they aren’t.
To argue that congress has the power to write up a constitutional amendment but not have the power to put a time limit on it, is absurd in the extreme.
They decided to place a time limit on this particular amendment. The time limit expiered in 1982. Its over.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."
The ERA would just give activist judges a new excuse to legislate politically correct laws from the bench.
The noise that we're now hearing concerning failed ERA is election year stunt by desperate, anti-PDJT Democrats imo.
Every day she looks more and more like Stephen Hawking.
Democrats don’t care if the ERA passes, they’re just happy to use it as a talking point.
Gregory Watson didn’t take no for an answer when it came to ratifying an amendment first proposed in 1789. But it didn’t have an expiration date like the ERA. The passage of the 27th Amendment makes for an interesting read.
No one mentioned that 3 states later rescinded their vote for the ERA.....or is that correct?
I have to admit - going 38 years beyond a deadline does seem a bit excessive ... it’s dead, Jim.
