Perhaps the Constitution never spelled it out. And so here is where we need Congress to spell it out, or to have a nationwide grassroots Petition to make it law.

LAW: any bill before Congress can be made to be stripped down to a one bill issue. If either house- the senate or representatives has a majority of 1 more than 50%, then any bill that has more than one issue can be stripped down to that essential 1 issue bill.

For example, the funding of government bill is saddled and strapped with Healthcare other issues by the irrational tea-party Republicans.

Well, if the law above were in place, then the Senate Democrats could have passed the requirement that says the Funding of Government cannot have any attached superficial and unrelated other bills-- Obamacare to it.

In other words, every important legislation to be voted upon, can be stripped of its idiotic attachments of unrelated issues.

Just like the upcoming Debt Ceiling bill. There, the Senate Democrats who have 1 vote more than 50% would demand that the bill be Clean of any other unrelated issues. In this manner, the House and Senate would be voting on just one issue -- debt ceiling and not silly unrelated things such as the teaparty wanting Obamacare or wanting lollipops for their constituents.

It is really a no-brainer, that Congress, a long time ago, should have seen that it needs the ability to have bills before Congress that are purely clean and pristine with one issue at focus-- funding government or raising debt ceiling.

This idea that a bill can have scores and hundreds of unrelated issues attached is an invention by circus clowns or the Republican tea party.
