Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) wants to completely strip judges of the ability to rule on the legality of same sex marriage.


"Something else that we can do to reinforce our pro-marriage, pro-life, pro-family agenda is to limit the subject-matter jurisdiction of the courts," Bachmann said during a Monday speech in Pella, Iowa.

"At the federal level with what are called Article III courts, Article III of the United States Constitution, we can limit the subject matter that justices can rule on. We have it within our authority to decide what judges can rule on and what they can’t."
