Neverending Story (aka The Continuing Power Struggle in Our Government)

Congress is flexing it's Article III muscle again, and attempting to limit the jurisdiction of the Court.
The House is expected to vote this week on a bill that says only state courts can hear cases involving the pledge. As a result, the Supreme Court could not rule on whether "under God" violates the First Amendment, which says in part, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."

Let's see, now State courts would be interpreting the First Amendment. That's what we need. 50 different opinions as the Constitutionality of the Pledge.

"And the Beat goes On"
