Since 1798, only 33 proposed amendments have been sent to the states. Only six of those failed to pass. The last amendment that went to the states and failed was an amendment to allow the District of Columbia to have representation in congress.

Why do you think the US Constitution has been amended only twenty seven times?

Because to amend the Constitution you have to propose an amendment in Congress, then it has to be formally passed by Congress. After being passed by Congress, the amendment is sent to the states to be ratified, but it has to be ratified by 3/4 of the states within a 10 year limit, otherwise the amendment is not added to the list of amendments


What are two ways of proposing an amendment to the Constitution?

There are two methods: 1. A specific amendment is written and proposed by 2/3 of the Congress. Then the proposed amendment is sent for ratification to either the state legislatures or state ratifying conventions. Congress decides whether state legislatures or state ratifying conventions are to be used. For the proposed amendment to become effective 3/4 of the legislatures or conventions must ratify it. 2. A convention for proposing amendments is called for by Congress on application by 2/3 of the states for such a convention. Specific amendments are written by the convention and sent to the states for ratification. Even if the proposed amendments come from a convention rather than from Congress, it is Congress which decides whether ratification is to be by state legislatures or state ratifying conventions. Again, for the proposed amendments to become effective, 3/4 of the legislatures or conventions must ratify the proposed amendments. To date the first method, proposal by Congress itself, is the only method by which amendments have been proposed. None of the existing amendments have been proposed by a national convention. To date every amendment to the Constitution with the exception of the Twenty First Amendment (Repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment), has been ratified by state legislatures. The Twenty First Amendment is the only current amendment that has been ratified by state ratifying conventions.
