The House voted to kill another proposed constitutional amendment, disappointing many in the country.

The White House, in a statement Tuesday, urged passage of the measure. “When activist judges insist on redefining the fundamental institution … for their states or potentially for the entire country, the only alternative left to make the people’s voice heard is an amendment of the Constitution.”

Thus died this amendment:

The Supreme Court, even if held hostage by its activist members, shall never elect a president.
