    The Constitution CLEARLY grants that power to the Congress. They are free to abdicate that authority. They are NOT beholden by ANY language in the Constitution to exercise it. If you believe otherwise, feel free to cite it. Good luck with that.
    Furthermore, the ultimate authority for determining what is or is not constitutional lies in the Judicial branch. If they rule that it is Congresses call, that interpretation is legal, per se.
