PODCAST: SCOTUS: “Outrageous. Aggressive.”

Today’s guest runs down the major and disastrous decisions from this Supreme Court. Elizabeth Wydra is the Constitutional Accountability Center’s President. From 2008-2016, she served as its Chief Counsel. Throughout her tenure she has filed more than 200 briefs on behalf of the Constitutional Accountability Center and clients, which include preeminent constitutional scholars and historians, state and local government organizations, groups such as the League of Women Voters and the AARP, and members of Congress.

Bill features the work of the Constitutional Accountability Center whose vision is: “Constitutional Accountability Center envisions a future in which judges, policymakers, academics, non-profit organizations, and the public understand the Constitution, in its most vital respects, to be a progressive document, and always apply the text, history, and values of the whole Constitution to resolve disputes over its meaning.” You can support its work at theusonstitution.org
