I think we’re still well within Constitutional order for Congress. Kavanaugh is questionable but the Judiciary isn’t in crisis. Executive? Well, it may lay there.

I need help understanding so that I can see what you see.

All protocol was followed in the legislative. However, they did not get the necessary push-back from Executive so solutions have been injunctions from district judges to halt problem legislation.

This I see as part of the balancing act in action.

What _is_ dangerous is things like this:

A precedent started during the Obama administration ,where State AG’s stopped as many of Obama’s policies from working as they could, tying things up in court.

Now during the Trump administration, a similar pattern is emerging.

They do this when Congressional solutions are not available.

Should there be a limit to State AG or the power of Federal judges that is different from what they currently have?

My opinion is that nationwide injunctions are a good thing. The danger is:
