Obama’s right to pick a SCOTUS judge is pretty clear although the GOP is arguing otherwise. This has been covered by media. What isn’t being talked about as much is what happens when there is a tie.  SCOTUS3In the case of a tie the decisions of the lower court stand. Justice Kennedy moves from being the tie breaker to the enabler of red state judges. This month SCOTUS is hearing arguments about access to abortion in Texas, Nonprofits religious employers being able to decide if you can use birth control, The one person One vote rule which applies to gerrymandering and whether Universities can racially profile their alumni. Shame on the Right wing for playing this game it is un-American unconstitutional, and an abortion of justice. One can respect people who have different views than yourself, but, what are the values of those playing these games with the justice system.  thirdwavedave.blogspot.com
