LIBERAL MAJORITY ON SUPREME COURT ALONG WITH CONSERVATIVES ROBERTS, KENNEDY, AND ALITO EXPAND FEDERAL POWER AGAIN

“In dissent, Justice 1. Clarence Thomas said the federal government overstepped its bounds.
"Congress' power, however, is fixed by the Constitution," Thomas wrote. "It does not expand merely to suit the states' policy preferences, or to allow state officials to avoid difficult choices regarding the allocation of state funds." He was joined by Justice Antonin Scalia..

Did the liberal members of the Supreme Court and 3 conservatives just destroy the last constraints the people have imposed on the government? I think so. I believe Thomas and Scalia hit the issue right on the head. What may be good public policy is not a basis to reduce the constraints on the government imposed by the people through the constitution. I will be curious how Fox news deal with this issue. Are they going to ignore the expansion of federal power merely because it serves keeping sexual offenders in jail indefinitely?

A decision of the Court is not valid merely because we like the result.
