The Stupidity Of Republicans – ‘GOP Bill Would Ban Supreme Court From Citing Its Own Obamacare Cases’
He actually thought that all Congress had to do was pass legislation saying that the Supreme Court couldn’t consider past Obamacare decisions.
What an idiot…..but that’s the control Republicans want.
Control what people hear, see, read and think…….
‘Rep. Steve King (R-IA) hates Obamacare so much that he doesn’t even want the Supreme Court to cite its own major Obamacare cases in future opinions, according to a bill he introduced Tuesday’.
‘The bill itself list the names of major lawsuits the Affordable Care Act has faced at the Supreme Court and bars them “from citation for the purpose of precedence in all future cases.”
What you’re asking? He wants to block the Supreme Court from even citing other Obamacare cases?
The bill claims that “Under Article 3, Section 2” Congress is allowed to “to provide exceptions and regulations for Supreme Court consideration of cases and controversies.”
Article 3 Section 2 – “In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make”.
Congress can make the guidelines for consideration – but not finding of law.
There is a reason the 3 branches are separate.
What an idiot…….
