Hopeful for the Future: Lincoln High School's Constitution Team
Congressman Blumenauer met with students from the Lincoln High School Constitution Team Saturday morning. The Lincoln team won the 2012 State Championship and will represent the State of Oregon in Washington DC at the "We the People" National competition. Blumenauer answered questions from the students and shared his thoughts on the balance of power between the three branches of government, the increasingly unwieldy national surveillance and security apparatus, and how the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision has changed the political landscape.
“After listening to such thoughtful comments and questions, I am inspired by these young people and very hopeful for this country’s future,” Blumenauer commented afterward.
