Episode details

The big Supreme Court rulings have finally arrived! On today’s podcast, David and Sarah discuss two unexpected majorities in California v. Texas, which upheld the constitutionality of Obamacare (again!), and Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which unanimously protected the religious liberty of Catholic Social Services after the city of Philadelphia excluded CSS from its foster parent program for refusing to certify same-sex couples as foster parents. Our hosts analyze how the Supreme Court denied standing to the states challenging the ACA and then dive into two spicy opinions from Alito. Plus, some “palace intrigue” discussion about whether Alito was denied his chance to write a majority opinion.
