Can Congress over rule the Supremes w/out an amendment?

I found this article from several days ago and wondered whether it's accurate. I'll watch the show the next few days to see if Thom comments on it. Thanks, Noel E.

Brilliant proposed model for Medicare for All in California. Make the workers pay for it and NOT the rich or the poor.

Religious Freedom for Institutions, or Individuals? A different angle on the new HHS mandates

Employees of religious organizations have essentially the same rights as anyone else in our society. That includes a right to privacy, as well as a right to the free exercise of their religion. Their religious freedom is not circumscribed by others of even their own sect.
