Here's a bright idea...

It has come to our attention that the seperation of powers is so... 18th century. In order to modernize our government, and in so doing, destroy the key functional elements in the Constitution we have decided to try and allow congress to reverse the decisions of the Supreme Court.

Let's do an example. The Supreme Court knocked down anti-sodomy laws. Congress can, by vote of the majority, put them back. How about Roe v. Wade? Desegregation?

Now, those are cases where local laws were overturned- but there have been federal laws struck down by the USSC too. If this bill were to pass, which I highly doubt it will, the Supreme Court is at the whim of congress. Essentially, congress gets the final say on whether or not something is constitutional.

As a rule, you don't let the people making the laws have the final review on whether or not those laws are allowed by the meta-ruleset that describes the appopriate functions.

::facepalm:: I hope someone realizes that Rep. Ron Lewis was scraped out of the filter of the gene pool. I mean, you can see that he's not very bright. Actually... he kinda looks like our landlord.
