Judicial Oversight Over The NSA

    While increased judicial oversight may be a good thing, if a federal judge bases a decision on the notion that Congressmen and Senators “didn’t know what they were approving,” this could lead to all sorts of mischief by the courts.

    First off the bat would be to strike down the ACA, as even the House majority leader indicated that she had no clue what was in the bill, as we had to “pass it in order to find out.” While that may be good from a utilitarian prospective, I fear we’d find a race between conservative and liberal judges to start striking down laws they don’t like based on this reasoning.
