I have a question. 

If a cable company in New York can ask the Supreme Court to intervene and ask the National Labor Relations Board to stop pursuing labor disputes because they dispute the constitutionality of President Obama's recess appointments to the NLRB (caused by the GOP's appointment obstructionism) ...

... can labor unions ask the Supreme Court to intervene and ask the Federal Reserve to stop bailing out and funneling cheap money to Wall Street and our Too Big To Fail banks? You know, until the constitutionality of the Federal Reserves authority to create $3 trillion (by purchasing toxic assets) is settled.

NOTE: In reality my question is a bogus one. There's no constitutional dispute on either issue here. The President can make recess appointments and Congress can delegate financial authority. I'm just raising questions about Justice Robert's decision to accept the cable company's petition, which is being pushed by corporations who benefit from GOP obstructionism and government paralysis.
