Republican Chief Justice John Roberts again joining the Supreme Court liberals in a 5-4 ruling. This time the decision involves abortion clinic regulations in Louisiana that required abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
Roberts, appointed by former President George W. Bush, appearing to flip flop on the issue in this ruling because he ruled in favor of similar regulations in Texas when the court majority was "liberal" in 2016 and Roberts was one of the minority supporting the regulations.
The abortion issue a tough and contentious one but this ruling from Roberts reminds us that the Republican Party behind him is backed by powerful forces of banking and business that want things like unrestricted immigration and social liberalism. John Roberts seeing to it that those forces are appeased in his recent rulings on LGBT employment, children of illegal immigrants and now abortion in his recent votes.
Another Supreme Court ruling today was a victory for President Trump. The high court ruling that a consumer finance protection agency established during the Obama Administration was under his control. Trump will now have the authority to fire the head of that agency.
