As far as I know government uses most if not all amendments every day including the ammendent that specifies how congress should enact their every day responsibilities. The first 10 are the Bill of Rights, stating what every American citizen has a right to. The other amendments state things such as civil rights, the abolishment of slavery, taxation, the organization of the 3 branches of govt., and any number of policies that every citizen uses every day mostly without their knowledge.

Literally, when you walk out the front door every day and go to work you, as a person, are utilizing nearly 60% of the amendments ever created. Heres just a few examples.

When you walk out of your house and go to work. You basically use 12 of the first 13 amendments. When you go get money from a bank and buy something such as liquor, you use amendment 16 and 21. The list could surely go on and on. Congress themselves uses nearly all of the amendments every day to site and debate bills that have come before congress. The very fact that there is a congress at all is use of amendment 20.

So it stands to answer your question that Congress uses several ammendements and the correct question should be What amendment doesn't the government use on a daily basis?

Hope that helps.
