POSC – Lecture 6 Read DOE V. BUSH – on Blackboard (listed in syllabus) Discussing valley forge case? Article 4, section 3, clause 2   flast requires that in order for taxpayers to have  standing its got to be article 1, section 8.  Its where congress’s spending power comes from. Tax dollars sent to the  government are sent through article 1, section 8. The first prong is not met, what about the second prong. It would appear the second prong is met, but Rehinquist never gets to that.  The people in the dissent say,  Flast v. Cohen (1968) Valley Forge v. Christian College Americans United (1982) Hein v. Freedom from Religious Foundation (2007) Hein Case (2007) Conservative court, start to see the way this court is framing the issue. Does Freedom From Religion have standing to go ahead and bring this  lawsuit.  o Look to the language the court is using and framing the issue in terms  of standing. o The dissent seems to be mocking the fact that it is a “plurality.” Nothing more than a reevaluation of Flast.
