The Founders knew a time would come when the states would have to flex their constitutional muscles to restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government. They gave the states the constitutional power to push back against an intrusive federal government. That’s why the states matter.
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s judicial record demonstrates that he will protect the role of the states in the Constitution by upholding and enforcing the separation of powers and federalism. Respecting these limits on government power in the Constitution is one of the most important jobs of a Supreme Court Justice.
