Past Completely Conservative Supreme Court Consequences Becomes Instructive Today
Thomas M. Keck, political science professor and the Michael O. Sawyer Chair of Constitutional Law and Politics in the Maxwell School, “Could hard-right Supreme Court haunt GOP? History says maybe.”
The possible infiltration of Brett Kavanaugh can shift the Supreme Court completely right, which has generated consequences in the past. In the past the Supreme Court denied many of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs that would’ve helped the U.S out of Depression.
Keck specializes in the U.S Supreme Court and says, “Over the long course of time, the court follows broader political trends.” “But it doesn’t tend to turn as quickly as the elected branches,” he exclaims.
