If only, an elected Congressman/woman would consider legislation to be constitutional. First.
If only, that consideration wasn’t just left to the courts to decide, but in the legislative process itself.
If only, there were common sense applied up and down the line, including how a widely cited expert on the Supreme Court, responded, “How weird is that, I thought. Isn’t it a court’s job to determine whether or not something is, in fact, constitutional? And isn’t that sort of provided for in, well, the Constitution?” (Well, so much for being an – expert.)
If only, a progressive blogger – that writes in U.S. News & World Report, that such talk of requiring constitutionality is “just plain wacky.” (Wacky? Is that all that blogger has to describe it? Not, correct?)
Jonah Goldberg refers to this as creepy logic. I call it what it is.
This is how an elected official should be doing their job. In compliance with the Constitution. Daily.
