    The 14th Amendment states that when the right to vote is abridged, the state's Congressional delegation is to be reduced in proportion to the abridgement.

    As for the current situation, I don't believe any state's violation reach the 709,000 mark, but we should probably set a minimum of 1 seat to make an effective penalty.

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman

      base the congressional apportionment on the number of voters in an election rather than census data! That way every state would want to maximize turnout!

      It would end voter roll purging, strange ex-felon laws - states would be fighting to get everyone to the polls.
