It‚Äôs not Biden‚Äôs fault he‚Äôs sucking at his job ‚Ä¶ yeah, that‚Äôs it.
If only SCOTUS would just ignore the basic fundamentals of this country and let President Might‚Äôve Pooped His Pants do whatever he wants. The nerve of them making him do things the right way and go through Congress.
The real Supreme Court ruling appears to be this: The Biden administration can only try new solutions to new problems if it runs them through a gerrymandered House and a filibuster-friendly Senate first.

From The New Republic:
The real ruling appears to be this: The Biden administration can only try new solutions to new problems if it runs them through a gerrymandered House and a filibuster-friendly Senate first. All those laws that Congress already spent two centuries writing and updating? They don‚Äôt count anymore‚ÄĒor, barring that, there are countless new restrictions and limits to be found in their text. Don‚Äôt even try to argue that something like Congress‚Äôs half-century mandate for OSHA to provide ‚Äúsafe and healthful working conditions‚ÄĚ covers a mere nuisance like Covid-19. Oh, and if you‚Äôre going to argue a case in person before the Supreme Court this term, please¬†participate remotely¬†if you test positive. The justices don‚Äôt want to be exposed to the virus at work.
Seriously, that‚Äôs all we hear when we read that article.
The real Supreme Court ruling appears to be this: the Constitution exists.

They‚Äôd be far happier living in a country without checks and balances, like most people who are angry the court stuck to the Constitution.
Remember when Obama called the Constitution a barrier to the things he wanted to get done?
That's how the constitution is written, sorry. And it cuts both ways, BTW: The gerrymander in Md has such an outrageous, strong Dem bias that a good 40% of the pop has no voice at all in the House; and during Repub. administrations Dem senators went hoarse praising the filibuster

That‚Äôs how the constitution works, you clowns. That‚Äôs exactly how our government is supposed to work.

You mean Congress has to‚Ä¶.checks notes‚Ä¶. legislate? The horror!

Yes. New solutions have to come from Congress.

What a concept! The president doesn't have unilateral authority to simply do things, and instead must have the approval of the co-equal branch of government that is the legislature.
Let's see, I'm pretty sure there is a document that explains this. What was it called again?

There's three branches of government for a reason, this is one of those reasons.
