Summary
"The Guardians of Judicial Independence The U.S. Supreme Court rules on some of the most important issues in American politics. Naturally, these decisions strike a nerve with many Americans. In the wake of the 2015 landmark ruling Obergefell v. Hodges, in which the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guarantees a right to marry for same-sex couples, Republican Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana argued that "The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own ... . If we want to save some money, let's just get rid of the Court."1 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated that the "American people, through the democratic process, should be able to determine the meaning of this bedrock institution [marriage] in our society."2 And Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, nearly the 2016 Republican nominee for president, proposed constitutional amendments to overturn federal court rulings legalizing gay marriage and to strip the federal courts of their ability to hear same-sex marriage cases.3"--
