Does Congress care more about upholding the constitution or finding ways around the constitution?
To impose the will of their lobbyists on a once libertarian union of states?

Seems like the correct answer is; finding ways around the constitution. But, only if it helps the rich.

They find ways to skate around it all too often. So it seems that most are experts on how to do that rather than experts on it's preservation.

If they pass a law, and it's not struck down by the courts as unconstitutional, then they've done what they wanted to do. Whether you call that "upholding" the Constitution or "finding ways around" the Constitution is pretty irrelevant to them.
