By now surely you’ve heard. From FoxNews.com:

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that President Obama violated the Constitution when he sidestepped the Senate to fill open spots on a labor relations panel, in a major setback for the president.

The suit had been brought by a local business in Washington state challenging the National Labor Relations Board. Supported by dozens of Senate Republicans, the case argued the president didn’t have the power to make three appointments to the NLRB.

But a three-judge panel for the Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia said the appointments were not valid because the Senate was not officially in recess. If the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of board decisions.

Read the whole article. It’s a good thing.

And SC Legislators … LOOK! It is possible to UNDO SOMETHING that has been responsible for HUNDREDS of decisions since the inception because it’s Unconstitutional.

    The decision is important, but why did it take a year to be affirmed by a court? Convenient timing, but justice delayed is justice denied.
