Letter: Supreme Court rulings will backfire on Republicans
The United States Supreme Court, packed with a majority of right wingers, has overturned Roe vs. Wade, which had been the accepted law of the land for fifty years, and angered millions of American women.
Further, they have overturned Affirmative Action which gave black Americans a chance at higher education. They have denied President Biden’s student debt reduction proposal and alienated forty-five million students. They have turned a blind eye to the bloody epidemic of gun violence which afflicts our country.
Republicans don’t seem to understand that each of these rulings are a nail in their own coffin. They may be naively jubilant right now, but in November, 2024 their cheering will be abruptly stopped.
We’ve had enough.
