Should all laws passed by Congress and signed by the President be reviewed by Supreme Court for basic constitutionality before being imposed on the nation?
No. They review laws when there's a question as to the constitutionality and it comes up in a court case. Aside from that, requiring them to review every law passed every year would simply put them in an early grave.
There was 230ish laws passed last year... Scotus is backed up enough as is..
The Supreme Court is part of the Judicial Branch.
Once a law is imposed, a citizen must take it all the way back to the Supreme court to determine if it is constitutional. Most Americans don't have the ability to fight a law that high and everyone has to live under an unconstitutional law until someone comes along that can. I know there would be instances when a constitutional law could be applied wrong but it would save alot if it were reviewed first.
That is where you come in. Tell your representatives how you think about a law.
