How do we tame a rogue Supreme Court?
Saturday's coffee klatch
My informal weekly coffee with Heather Lofthouse (Executive Director of Inequality Media Civic Action and my former student), discussing the past week. Today we talk about the rogue Supreme Court and what Democrats can — and must — do. In particular, Senate Dems still have the power to carve out filibuster exceptions for reproductive rights, voting rights, and the climate — and then enact national legislation protecting reproductive rights and voting rights, and authorizing the EPA to move forward with the Clean Power Plan rule. Why don’t they do so? We also discuss Cassidy Hutchinson’s powerful testimony before the House January 6 committee, and what it might mean for prosecuting Trump.
