In a column in the Washington Post, a columnist talks about the Supreme Court nomination, and how Democrats are Democrats on the wrong battlefield
I don’t disagree with the thesis, but within the column he says something that others have said in similar ways, and it disturbs me that there are actually people who think this.
“And Congress, not the executive, has been known to overturn Supreme Court decisions.”
I ask anyone to provide me with an example. The Supreme Court interprets law. Congress makes law. So the only way to ‘overturn’ a Supreme Court decision is through a constitutional amendment (requiring more than just the US legislature, but also the state legislatures to buy in), or for the Supreme Court to reinterpret. There is no other way.
