Wisconsin’s “Safer at Home” order is in limbo at the moment, all because of the state Supreme Court’s ruling this evening:

In other words, “unconstitutional.”
Here we go….the stay-at-home orders are absolutely unconstitutional.https://t.co/v9HUbs0I0u

So public officials can’t just use “we’re trying to keep you safe so do what we say” as an excuse to implement any edict they want? Shocker.
"An agency cannot confer on itself the power to dictate the lives of law-abiding individuals as comprehensively as the order does without reaching beyond the executive branch's authority." Rein it in! ???? https://t.co/IkfJg6LsZY

Breaking News: Powergrab foiled in Wisconsin.
The pandemic crisis has trusted more power to state governors and too many have decided to push the envelope against democracy and powersharing. The Wisconsin Supreme Court just pushed back!https://t.co/O6UayBY6hR

However, not everybody’s thrilled, including the state’s Democrat governor, Eric Holder and others:
Wisconsin @GovEvers tells reporters: "Today, Republican legislators convinced four members of the Supreme Court to throw the state into chaos."
Evers says more people will get sick.

In invalidating stay at home order Wisconsin Supreme Court callously puts lives at risk. Republican legislature and justices now own impact of their actions. This is ideology/partisanship over law/good sense. A lot of “regular folks” will suffer. Shameful. https://t.co/V8GekFAJ7P

“This decision will undoubtedly go down as one of the most blatant examples of judicial activism in this court's history. And it will be Wisconsinites who pay the price. pic.twitter.com/7oKGL8D5k1

“In a high-profile win for the state's Republican-led legislature.”
You know who else it’s a big win for?? The coronavirus. https://t.co/oZMVdgDepT

The state Supreme Court’s ruling against “Safer at Home” orders doesn’t force people to leave their homes, but it’s apparent that many on the Left don’t trust people to do what’s in their own best interest without orders from government officials.
