Today is a significant day for our Country.
That might seem hyperbolic, but it’s not. Think about it. What happens today, when the Supreme Court announces its ruling (about 1.5 hours from now) will have an effect on our healthcare, our discourse, our economy, and our presidential race, and the implications of whatever ruling occurs will ricochet down the years.
Unlike 9/11, everyone has been able to see this coming. Also unlike 9/11, there’s no consensus on which side is “right” and which side is “wrong.” In fact, totally unlike 9/11, this ruling may end up being so multifaceted, it will be more like taking sides in a game of Calvinball than a win/lose game.
Whatever happens, I think we’ll look back at this decision as a turning point for some time to come.
