    Wild Guess Poll #0001: This Congress and the Supremes

    I was reading the thread on the move in Congress to limit some private sector salaries and cam to wonder how much of this Congress' legislation will likely be overturned by the Supreme (or a lower Federal) Court.

    What do y'all think?

    At most, .05% or so.

    Congress passes hundreds of laws each year. The Court takes on about 10 cases each year dealing with the constitutionality of federal legislation. Generally, it's a while after the law was passed.

    Close to zero, IMO.
    "All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne

    Ever wonder how many pages are in our legislative library and the complex web of over lapping laws? I bet its mind boggling.
