Who needs checks and balances, anyway?

A bunch of congresscritters have gotten together and launched a bill that would give Congress the right to overrule the Supreme Court. Yep…that’s right…apparently, they never took civics.

Oh, but it gets better, turns out that the reason they’d like to hamstring the judiciary and topple the current system of checks and balances? Because the Supremes might rule in favor of letting gay people have equal rights. Rep. Lewis, when introducing the bill said, “I am a strong supporter of numerous legislative measures currently being considered by this Congress, aiming to define marriage as an exclusive union between one man and one woman. However, I believe a more comprehensive solution is necessary to address the broader, troubling trend toward judicial activism, a development with definitive implications beyond just the issue of marriage.”
