Do you think the Supreme Court should rule on the constitutionality of legislation?
In the past, conservatives have cried foul when liberals sought to strike down conservative policy with judicial review. Today's headlines tell us President Obama is crying, "foul!" now that his healthcare reform is under the scrutiny of our highest court. Do you think the Constitution affords autonomy to the judicial system's review/approval/rejection of legislation?
THAT is why we have three branches within our government....
That is exactly the purpose of the Supreme Court as defined by the Constitution.
Article III: The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution...
It's called the principal of Judicial Review, the doctrine under which legislative and executive actions are subject to review by the court.
Yes, Constitution should be afforded full autonomy to the judicial system only when the highest court can take decision in any matter judicially and faithfully devoid of fear.
