Article VI, clause 3 of the United States Constitution states the following:
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution.
Newly elected members of the House and Senate must recite the following oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
It is difficult, however, to support and defend something you do not understand. Consider the following video. It was posted on YouTube today and shows the response of a Republican congressman allegedly representing the 2nd district of New Jersey after he is asked about the Constitution:
ALL IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE, READ THE DAMN PIECE OF PAPER, LEARN IT, OBEY IT, YOU DID TAKE AN OATH!!!!
