The Democrats' delusional argument about the court vacancy
When the court would be enacting the liberal agenda that is an argument against putting an Obama nominee on the court. The ruling allows the Democrats and the unions to continue their inherent conflict of interest in negotiating contracts with government workers. That is a ruling that can be reversed much easier than one where liberals have the majority on the court.
The court’s 4-to-4 tie on an important labor case gave Democrats a rare double victory. Not only did they get to celebrate the union win made possible by the result, they also got a fresh opportunity to remind Americans that the stalemate over the vacancy will limit the court’s ability to act.
