Bill Cosby Rumors Gone Wild

medium Congress Took over 200 Years to Ratify Amendment Regulating PayThe 27th amendment to the United States Constitution was submitted to Congress for ratification on September 25th, 1789. This amendment, which added limits on how Congress could give themselves pay raises, took an unbelievable 202 years, 7 months, 12 days to finally be ratified. Even then, it seemed only to be ratified unintentionally. The average ratification time of the remaining 26 amendments is only 1 year, 8 days.
