Civics 10th amendment project

  1. 1. Battleship -For the 10th Amendment S
  2. 2. ***Briefing Room***
  3. 3. S - "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
  4. 4. + Content’s Intepretation?  - The Tenth Amendment states the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government by the Constitution (that is, not prohibited by the Constitution) granted to the states and the people, thus able to guarantee state and personal rights
  5. 5. Drafting and Adpotion • - The Tenth Amendment is similar to the Articles of Confederation: • "Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right (which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States) in Congress assemble…”
  6. 6. -When he introduced the Tenth Amendment in Congress, James Madison explained that many states were eager to ratify this amendment, despite critics who deemed the amendment superfluous or unnecessary
  7. 7. Judicial Interpretation: S Printz vs. United States: S Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act provisions require the Attorney General to establish a national system for instantly checking prospective handgun purchasers' backgrounds S Petitioners claimed that the background check is unconstitutional since it violates personal rights. S However, the judges reversed this case since they did not find this unconstitutional, since the constitution did not reserve this right to the citizens.
  8. 8. But Why Us? • - All the Americans are effected in some way by the 10th Amendment every day. Since we are all live in a state, rights not enumerated to the national government has to be guaranteed to the citizens and the state government (which do make everyday decisions that effects our life). • - People are deeply concerned about the state's rights and theirs. Again, since the states do make decisions that changes our life; we have power to make decisions to differ the course of my life. • - The rights of the states and the people had been a problem since the constitution has been established. Many has argued for a weaker central government, thus guarantees further state rights and citizen rights. • - A ton of money, time, congress session, and court cases deals with the issue of state rights. The Obamacare (some argued that is unconstitutional due to its approval ignores state rights) alone has spent over 500 million dollars.
  9. 9. The Current Events?   - There are indeed currently lots of discussion concerning Obamacare, and unsurprisingly the rights of the states are mentioned. Since most states senators and state executives are Republicans, the majority of them favor the repeal of the law. This led 32 states representing 117 million Americans against Obamacare. - According to the Rasmussen Report, 52% of Americans actually favor the repeal of Obamacare. However, as the Republican-led congress and states continuously clash with the Democratic Executive; it would be extremely difficult for any progress at repealing this law to form.
