How's this for a "constitutional scholar"?
Our 'President' laments that House Republicans "may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies".
That's the entire PURPOSE of a member of the House of representatives. They "represent" a block of people who've sent them to D.C. to be their vote proxy.
Funny that the "constitutional scholar" doesn't get that.
