SCOTUS' Ruling that the Voting Rights Act is "unconstitunal" is, itself, unconstitutional

Stanford’s Michael McConnell says the [SCOTUS] decision’s reasoning is just “made up. There’s no requirement in the Constitution to treat all states the same" [EG, Alabama (Shelby County)]

When you’re cutting out the heart of what is probably the most important civil rights statute ever passed by the United States Congress and your opinion fails even to identify the constitutional provision the statute allegedly violates, it’s a permanent stain on the institution." Scott Lemieux, HT DeLong
