100 Words: The Threat Posed by Barrett To Our Survival

Recently I argued here for President Biden adding four new Supreme Court justices. As The NYTimes’ Paul Krugman puts it, “Never mind all the talk about norms (which only seem to apply to Democrats, anyway.) What’s at stake here could be the future of civilization.” He refers to a G.O.P.-stacked Supreme Court blocking effective climate policy, which will be at the core of a President Biden’s economic agenda. Right wing super bagman Charles Koch is investing millions in Barrett’s confirmation to create “a court that will block government regulation of business — and above all a court that will hamstring a Biden administration.”
