As Roe v. Until the balance, the 2016 elections will be even bigger

First Read your information from "Meet the Press" and the Political Unit about the most important political issues of the day and why they are important.


Every choice has consequences. But some elections - like 2016 - have more consequences than others.

That is the shocking truth of this week's big news that the U.S. Supreme Court the new 6-3 new one seems confident it will support Mississippi's abortion ban - and possibly even overthrow Roe v. Wade.

Yes, Donald Trump was one-time president, joining the likes of Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush. But he also appointed three judges of the Supreme Court, replacing Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy cast ballot and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The Supreme Court hears the Mississippi abortion case against Roe v. Wade challenged

Trump has filed a number of strong judges in state and appellate courts, many of which interfere with President Biden's departure and Covid's response plans.

He withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, and there seems to be little chance of reviving us.

He also left the Paris climate agreement, presenting the Obama Era response to climate change (although Biden re-joined us after taking office).

In 2016, Hillary Clinton won a popular vote with 2 percent, 48 percent to 46 percent, but lost to Electoral College with 77,000 votes combined in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

By 2020, Democrats reunite - raising their student numbers (albeit with the GOP); have done a better job of managing Bernie Sanders and the team's ongoing team; they denigrated Jill Steins and the Green Party - and Joe Biden won 4.5 percent of the popular vote and won Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by a combined 257,000 votes.

But ask yourself: Which election cycle - 2016 or 2020 - was the most important when it came to the Supreme Court and closed Obama's agenda?

The answer is obvious. Especially after this week.
