Reining In the Courts
On my radio program as well as in other forums, I have long advocated reining in the federal courts because of the way they have usurped authority and far exceeded their proper constitutional role. Among the ways this can be done is by Congress exercising its constitutional power to restrict the courts' jurisdiction.
This linked article was written by former Attorney General Ed Meese for the Hoover Institution. I think his analysis and prescriptions to solve the courts problem is spot on. It is far beyond time to get control of this runaway train, especially because the left uses the judiciary to accomplish what it cannot accomplish legislatively.
