re: #150 Belafon

I was going to complain about the ruling, but thinking about it a bit more, I don’t think chambers should be allowed to sue. They aren’t a real entity with independent standing of those they represent.

Disagree in principle because my fear is that Gorsuch only joined this ruling to tee up a rationale for ruling against the US House in their lawsuit over Trump’s emergency border funding power grab. Also remember that the Courts had no problem with standing in US House v Azar. So think individual chambers still need to be able to sue over actions that by totally bypass their authority and ability to act as a check on the executive. Otherwise we end up codifying a situation where one chamber can totally prevent judicial review by refusing to sign off on a lawsuit.
