    In this case, the Court took for themselves the authority to review and strike down laws passed by Congress. They have no right to do this and the Constitution gives them no power to do this either. Congress should then take this power away from them. They gave "personhood" to corporations by citing the head note of Santa Clara County vs. Southern Pacific RR decision. Where did they get this right?
    They have the most power of any branch of our government and are the most removed from answering to the people. This is not right and Congress should start reigning in their power!
