(AmericanProsperity.com) – Every term, the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) makes rulings on dozens of cases, creating hundreds of pages of legal opinions interpreting our laws and Constitution. This season, America is anxiously awaiting a few final rulings from SCOTUS, including ones that will influence voting rights, free speech, and health insurance.
Will Our Election Integrity Be Upheld?
SCOTUS will soon rule on Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee, a case where Arizona state laws require ballots to be thrown out if cast in the wrong precinct and make it illegal for many people to deliver someone else’s ballot to a polling location. Naysayers believe the laws restrict voting access, but the conservative justices are likely to uphold the laws as states are given the power to run their own elections.
Protecting Student’s Free Speech Outside of School
Nearly everyone gets frustrated at one time or another, and many people choose to vent about the issue later on. One high school freshman did just that when she chose to criticize her school on Snapchat in 2017 after she did not make the varsity cheerleading team.
She was quickly suspended from the Junior Varsity team for her profane comments, although the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) took up her case to protect her freedom of speech outside of school grounds. SCOTUS will rule on this case soon, potentially setting a precedent for the nation’s almost 100,000 public schools.
The Future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
In California v. Texas, the Supreme Court is facing an intense and ongoing argument between the states over whether Congress’ 2017 elimination of the individual mandate for uninsured people made the entire ACA, nicknamed Obamacare, invalid. Many left-leaning states are defending the law, although no one can predict the ruling on this case.
Right now, only four of the justices that upheld Obamacare in 2012 are still serving on the court. With the current 6-3 conservative majority, this case holds a lot of weight.
SCOTUS Protects Our Constitution and Interprets Our Laws
As the court is set to recess at the end of June, its rulings will be coming out over the next few weeks. These decisions will give Americans a taste of what’s to come when they take on major issues later in 2021, including abortion and gun rights. Thankfully, however, the hard work of President Donald Trump to secure a conservative majority on our nation’s highest court will keep our Constitution and traditional values at the heart of our country for years to come.
