Checks and Balances

H.R.177 – To bar Supreme Court decisions in certain Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act cases from citation.



This would set a dangerous and likely unconstitutional precedent if passed that could allow the legislative branch to decide for the judicial branch what court cases can and cannot be cited as precedent for making important legal decisions, when they have no judicial background, or legal or constitutional authority, to do so. It would open the flood gate to allow them to throw out landmark decisions like Rove v. Wade, etc.
