The Supreme Court just struck it down and the nation is completely stunned. This ruling could set precedent for policy nationwide. Liberal Democrats are especially terrified — they don’t know what to do about it.
“BREAKING: Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Gov. Tony Evers’ order to stay home in a 4-3 decision,” reported Molly Beck, a journalist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, on Twitter this week.
Beck also noted that the state’s Supreme Court “is controlled by conservatives 5-2.” This fact clearly irks Wisconsin’s liberal governor who — like his counterpart in Michigan — is shredding the Constitution and civil liberties.
In a statement, Gov. Evers said he was “disappointed” in the court’s decision. “We cannot let this ruling undo all the work we have done and all the sacrifices Wisconsinites have made over these past few months,” he said.
He also spoke condescendingly of the court, accusing them of not taking science into account in their ruling. Newsflash: Courts are supposed to rely upon constitutional law and judicial precedent. Science is another matter.
Republican legislators, acting on behalf of their hurting constituents, filed the lawsuit to overturn Evers’ stay-at-home order, and the state Supreme Court granted the request. Now Wisconsin can start recovering.
