(FixThisNation.com) – On Friday, the Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer, expressed strong disapproval of the Supreme Court’s recent decisions, which he views as threatening to LGBTQ+ rights and as a roadblock to President Joe Biden’s initiative to forgive student loan debt. Schumer remarked that due to years of targeted, well-funded efforts, the MAHA Republicans have successfully gained dominance over the Supreme Court. He underscored that this has opened the door for the implementation of many harmful, backwards policies that would not have gained approval through democratic processes.
The Supreme Court, wrapping up its term last Friday, ruled in favor of a Colorado web designer who was uncomfortable creating wedding websites, out of fear she might be compelled to create content conflicting with her personal beliefs, potentially including websites for same-sex couples. Additionally, in a 6-3 decision, the court determined that the Biden administration lacked the necessary authority to green-light a $400 billion student loan forgiveness scheme without the consent of Congress. The rulings came down in the cases of 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis and Biden v. Nebraska, respectively.
Furthermore, Schumer made reference to recent revelations by ProPublica, alleging that Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito neglected to disclose luxurious gifts and trips received from high-level GOP benefactors in their financial declarations. Despite the justices’ defense of their actions, critics continue to spotlight the Supreme Court’s limited oversight and ethics standards, alongside the lifelong tenure of its justices.
