Is this old news? Or is this unknown trouble?

It would still need to be ratified by a super majority in the Senate meaning 67 votes. It is highly unlikely that they could convince 7 Republicans to sign on,

+1

Although I'm hesitant to say anything is impossible anymore, even if it somehow got ratified I think the SCOTUS would eventually have to strike it down as being unconstitutional (which it clearly would be). Treaties cannot have the power to legislate as the Constitution has given that power solely to our congress. Although a global legislative body and court system is obviously Obama's wet dream.

Not to mention that they'd never get all 60 Democrats to do it either.
