President should lose job if he shuts the government down

Concerning shutting down the government (“Trump's wall, Trump's shutdown,” Dec. 12), I should like to propose the following amendment to the Constitution: The federal government being beneficial to the people, the president shall not shut it down. If she or he does shut down the government, the leader of the opposing party in the U.S. House of Representatives shall take over as president.
