From the great state of Texas we have Congressman Louie Gohmert wondering aloud about the Speaker Of The House Of Representatives having at points too much power. The issue is relevant here in The Dominion Of Canada & our Federal Election political science students will make note as for many years, Canadians have been complaining that the Office Of The Prime Minister has been usurping too much power. Thus leaving regular MPs with less power & less of an ability to do things that they were elected to accomplish for their constituents in Parliament.
"Throughout Congressional history, there appear to be ongoing periods of greater & greater centralization of power in the Speaker of the House. Eventually, it becomes too destructive & someone or some people step up to decentralize the power."
