I want us to have a case wherein Amendment IX has a say ... and WINS!
SCOTUS cases regarding the Tenth Amendment are unfortunately rare I think. Personally, I think here should be a LOT more of them.

"The Supreme Court rarely declares laws unconstitutional for violating the Tenth Amendment. In the modern era, the Court has only done so where the federal government compels the states to enforce federal statutes. In 1992, in New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144 (1992), for only the second time in 55 years, the Supreme Court invalidated a portion of a federal law for violating the Tenth Amendment. The case challenged a portion of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985."
