*The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Monday in a challenge to President Obama’s power to name several recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. By most accounts, the argument did not go well for the administration. Justice Stephen Breyer said that he could not find anything in the Constitution that will “allow the president to overcome Senate resistance” to nominees. Justice Elena Kagan suggested that “it was the Senate’s job to decide” when it is in recess. Chief Justice John Roberts claimed that the Senate has “an absolute right to refuse” to confirm a nominee.*

    Yeah, no. This isn’t the Supreme Court killing union rights. It’s the Supreme Court doing its job and reminding people...
