Weird that they only care about unfair leverage when it's the government doing it and not private firms.

Yup, the argument against government control of prescription drugs is that the high prices in the US pay for all the research that big pharma does that they "don't profit from" in socialized health care countries, so the only way they'll keep working on new drugs is with YOY record profits.

Sounds like a fantastic reason to nationalize healthcare and medicine research instead of leaving it in the hands of private companies with distorted incentives. They can license the IP from the government and produce generics at a modest profit without any of the risk of the research.

The outcome will be whatever talking points Fox vomits into the brains of the swine feeding at their trough. In their minds it will be smoking gun proof of BIDEN CRIME FAMILY thus making it absolutely clear how Joe Biden is directing the corrupt and very unfair DoJ to ensure RIGGED AND STOLLEN, violating the very constitution of our country.

Yeah, a whole lot of it is "Biden's old" which just manifests as "can we get someone younger" but there's no real consensus on who that might be so it's just rummaging through the fridge and hoping something pops out you didn't see before. Barring some unforeseen development, it's likely to matter about as much as in 2020 when people complained Biden was old but the ones doing it the loudest were transparently maneuvering for an even older guy or a similarly old guy in visibly worse shape. I mean, if some charming young primary candidate or third party showed it would be big trouble, but no significant number of people are going to stay home because of Biden's age.

This is similar to the poo poo they pulled here in FL when we passed Amendment 4, which was supposed to legalize felon voting. The legislature passed a bill that restricted it to felons who paid all of their restitution, and when the state was sued because people trying to get their voting rights back couldn't determine how much they even owed due to faulty court records, the courts upheld the new bill saying that the state isn't legally required to tell someone how much they owe. So I have no idea how many ex-felons actually had their voting rights restored.

This seems like incredibly fertile soil to grow a 6-3 ruling from. :(

I meant the continued disenfranchisement of felons in Florida over unpaid restitution that the court refuses to tell them the exact amount of. I can see it being used as a vessel to enshrine more anti democratic precedent wrt felon voting rights.

Ohio GOP lawmakers have decided to combine their two largest electoral liabilities into one easy to vote against package. "Being drafted by legislative council" is a world away from "becoming law" so we'll see what happens.



I wonder if the Ohio state supreme court is willing to abrogate its entire function to the legislature. Let's find out.

I don't think they could more thoroughly violate the court's due process rights/area of responsibility if you gave them a hundred rewrites, good lord.
