Is the Constitution sill the law of the land?

In this letter to the editor, the writer points out that both Republicans and Democrats are guilty of bypassing the Constitution. He points out that
Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution states in part: 'But in all such Cases the Vote of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively.'

Although quaint, could the language be any clearer? How can Speaker Nancy Pelosi now tell us Congress can deem a bill has passed without actually voting on it?

We, as citizens, should not allow this to happen. We must demand that our elected officials obey their oath of office and follow the Constitution.

How can we continue to elect people who break their oath of office and don't obey the law of the land?
