I already did .

The onus is on you.


That was for the date to file a contestation, not when the House needed to resolve the issue.

Pay attention if a president is appointed by the house of representatives it will be by the outgoing house .

Not by the newly elected house .


Where is this said?

I would say the opposite is true. But, my opinion is based on facts and reality. And no I did not feel that way in 2016. The president is just so terrible when it comes to the economy, I don't think he has a legitimate chance. If< i am wrong then God help us. a reply to: Breakthestreak

No, you didn't, it doesn't state anywhere in any of your replies that the outgoing House must resolve the issue.

Jesus you have no idea the point you're arguing .

This is the way the constitution reads .


Presidential election Edit
Pursuant to the 12th Amendment, the House of Representatives is required to go into session immediately after the counting of the electoral votes to vote for president if no candidate for the office receives a majority of the electoral votes.


Dude just be glad you learned something today don't be angry that you were wrong .


At the end of a long and bitter campaign, Jefferson and Burr each won 73 electoral votes, Adams won 65 electoral votes, and Pinckney won 64 electoral votes. The Federalists swept New England, the Democratic-Republicans dominated the South, and the parties split the Mid-Atlantic states of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The Democratic-Republicans' failure to execute their plan to award Jefferson one more vote than Burr resulted in a tie, which necessitated a contingent election in the House of Representatives. Under the terms laid out in the Constitution, the outgoing House of Representatives chose between Jefferson and Burr.

Going into session immediately doesn't mean they have to resolve the issue prior to the 3rd.

Just because the outgoing House did it before doesn't mean they have to again, it's not a requirement.

The house followed the constitution previously and the outgoing House selected the president per constitutional requirements

It does mean they have to do it again. The only way to change the constitution is through amendments or supreme court rulings. Can you supply any of those or was that just your best guess ?

If the democrats get back into the Whitehouse God

so they could blame Trump.

That was in reference to the process itself, not a specific time frame to complete said process.

Show me where that is stated. You won't be able to but I'm asking anyway.


He already provided you the link, but here it is again since you missed it...

Source for what? You're the one saying the outgoing House must decide this even though it's no where in the Constitution or laws regarding succession.

I addressed this, that's in reference to the process.

You're just talking in circles again and confusing yourself. The process is what it is and I'm sure administration counsel will make sure that it is followed within the timeline that it needs to happen.

Nobody's talking about the line of succession. Quit trying to set up strawman because you're on the losing end of a uninformed assumption .

Who had in the bag in 2016?? Remember who didn't win?? One and the same.
