Constitutional Hardball

So long as Republicans maintain their grasp on power, they can enforce the Supreme court’s decisions through legislation, executive orders, and, if necessary, the National Guard.

If Democrats control both houses of congress, they can bring impeachment charges against justices, strip the court of jurisdiction to hear particular cases, change the size of the court to ensure favorable majorities, and even freeze the justices’ salaries out of spite.

States may refuse to comply with Court Decisions, claiming that the court’s current majority is illegitimate.
