BOOK OF THE MONTH SELECTION IS..

CASTE and the Origins of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson

CONSTITUTIONAL CORNER

THE ELECTORAL PROCESS

In the late summer of 1787, the Founding Fathers struggled to draft a solution that would satisfy the states of both larger and smaller populations regarding presidential elections. In hopes of satisfying all parties, the electoral college was offered as a solution. This compromise was reached whereby popular vote would determine what slate of party electors would meet on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December to cast their choice for president. The most common selection method of electors is by state party conventions. In PA though, the presidential nominee for each party nominates and sends their list of electors to the PA Secretary of State. The electors for all states will meet in their state capitols on December 14 to cast their votes for president and vice-president. On January 6, in a joint session of Congress, the electoral votes will be accepted and verified. These details are derived from

Article II and Amendment XII of the Constitution.

REAL RELIEF DENIED BY TRUMP AND McCONNELL

Pat Buchanan was disingenuous when he blamed Nancy Pelosi for stopping the second COVID relief bill in October ("Democracy holding us together," Dec. 23, Trib). He knows full well that for months, Nancy Pelosi had pressed for a $3.4 trillion relief package but Mitch McConnell was a staunch opponent and would only consider a $5oo. billion bill. Democrats wanted aid for state and local governments while Republicans pushed lawsuit immunity for businesses. Nancy Pelosi compromised and came down to $2.4 trillion, but McConnell would not budge. On October 6 Trump tweeted, "reject the $2.4 trillion and stop negotiating until after the election." It takes mental gymnastics to blame Nancy Pelosi when the obstruction for months has been Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump.
