More election year grandstanding. The Senate won't pass it, nor should they. To start pulling various items from the constitutional checks and balances undermines the foundation of the republic.
Kudos to the House. :applause: I hope the Senate follows suit.
Ironically, that's exactly what he's trying to do. The insertion of "under God" wasn't in the pledge until recently. When I was a kid (OK, a few decades ago) we didn't say it.
Not that it's a big deal, but the bad guys are trying to use it as a lever to undermine freedom generally. The courts are not subject to Congress, but are an independent branch of government.
That's how it needs to stay.
The courts below the Supreme Court are most certainly subject to Congress.
"To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court" - Article I, Section 8
And even the Supreme Court is not outside of the Congress' purview:
"In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make." - Article III, Section 2
