    No, its why it was ruled unconstitutional.

    Republican = Racism is a ginned partisan meme, a construct and the majority of the court saw through it.

    The Democrats just changed the plantation electing for a massive vote buying scheme that fostered generational dependence, they never abandoned it.

    the court can throw out any federal law it wishes, according to the current, mindset of america....congress creates law, the court decides if they are legal..

    according to James Madison the states are the final authority on any law they believe to be unconstitutional.

    I guess I have to do this again:

    The Court didn't rule the law is unConstitutional, just outdated. That's not a legal basis for throwing out a law.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I don't care what the mindset of America is, I'm saying they needed to cite at least the barest hint of a Constitutional reason. Otherwise, any law -- including the Constitution -- is up for grabs on the basis of age.

    Don't know what law you're talking about, but this one was passed in 2006 and challenged shortly thereafter. Your claim that "it was simply judged out-of-date" is absurd.

    That's. The reason we have 3 coequal branches of government.

    It's the Legislative Branch's " job " to write legislation.

    The fact you think their job includes "creating jobs " speaks volumes to your lack of economic knowledge.

    We tried that already. "Stimulus" was a miserable failure.

    They aren't coequal, and the Court does not have the authority to discard a law it thinks is no longer relevant.
