Default Supreme Court deals major blow to public sector unions

Oh my public sector unions can no longer extract a ransom payment from government employees.

Quote:
The justices struck down an Illinois law that required non-union workers to pay fees that go to collective bargaining and overturned a 1977 law that required employees to pay so-called "fair share" fees.
The ruling was 5-4 along familiar ideological lines, with conservative Justice Samuel Alito writing for the majority in a case that highlights how the blocking of President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee has dramatically changed the legal and political landscape.
"It is hard to estimate how many billions of dollars have been taken from nonmembers and transferred to public-sector unions in violation of the First Amendment. Those unconstitutional exactions cannot be allowed to continue indefinitely," Alito wrote.
Of course to the hyper partisan media the real issue is that Obama did not get to appoint another puppet to the SCOTUS. It's a tacit admission Democrats look to the SCOTUS to act as a super legislature. If the SCOTUS cannot be counted to implement a radical Progressive agenda while discovering new rights, then its the end of our Republic.

These late announced 5/4 decisions of the court have been split on ideological lines. Proving that SCOTUS decisions are not always inline with the Constitution as written and intended. Much less infallible.

Something upon which to think when someone defends their positions entirely based on recent SCOTUS renderings. Sadly, the SCOUS is not intemerate. Turns out politics does enter the arguments and is folded into the resulting decisions. We tend to think SCOTUS is the end of the road for such legal wrangling's. That's too easy.

It is a never-ending process of scrutiny which, for best success, should always be based on the original model. Score one for the Founders.
