Bernie Sanders Fails Again, Doesn’t Know How To “Supreme Court”
As Reported By Truth Revolt:
Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent a lot of time proving that on a lot of topics covering a lot of issues he doesn’t know a lot about. One lot he seems to be particularly confused about is that group in black robes in the big building in Washington: The Supreme Court.
Any Supreme Court nominee of mine will make overturning Citizens United one of their first decisions.

Excerpt via The Blaze:
The Supreme Court, however, is constitutionally limited in how it can address previous rulings, as it must wait for an actual case to arise before it can readdress a previous decision. The court can overturn or affirm a precedent only with a majority of the justices on board.
“The Federal Courts do not, under Article III of the Constitution, have the power to resolve legal questions that do not arise out of an actual dispute between real parties,” according to Cornell University Law School’s website.
