Indeed, there is more reason for striking this power of the court from the constitution than there is that of the qualified veto ot the President; because the decision of the court is final, and can never be reversed, even though both houses of Con- gress and the President should be unanimous in oppo- sition to it ; whereas the veto of the President may be overruled by a vote of tjvo thirds of both houses of con- gress, or by the people at t...
