Don’t Sleep on SCOTUS

    WRM, your brief brings to mind observation made years ago in University setting: the court’s systemic mandate under the Constitution has been to act as a check on the democratic majority and as a protector of private contract, credit, and property; with the caveat that, SCOTUS is qualified in the above by pressure exerted by various advocacy groups and the political climate of the times as well as political composition of court’s majority (setting was class on formation of capital and The Supremely Political Court).

    “It’s a case that could potentially check President Obama’s signature green policy measure and that has major implications for America’s coal industry.”

    After a more conservative court whiffed on the original ruling, which was asinine, and Roberts did that execrable “comity of the court” reversal on Obamacare and then, after determining the individual mandate was indeed a tax, failing to send it back to Congress because the tax had not been created IAW Congress’ own stated procedures for taxes, I ain’t holding out any hope that these geniuses are going to stand up da Man on his plans to destroy this country.
