Some time ago I posted an article entitled Running the Country 5-4, which addressed the issue of significant national questions being decided along party lines in the U.S. Supreme Court.
We have 100 U.S. Senators, 435 U.S. Representatives, and a President. With all that mental power being directed toward dealing appropriately with national issues within the confines of the U.S. Constitution, it would seem that we should not have so many important issues still falling in the laps of 9 unelected Supreme Court Justices.
It is a travesty that such crucial issues are decided by a bare majority of unelected officials. Yet that is precisely what is once again on the horizon regarding the constutionality of national healthcare, aka ObamaCare.
If Justices did not cast ballots along such clearly partisan lines, close votes would be much more palatable. Here’s hoping that the ObamaCare result will be an outlier.
