While some Republicans are disappointed with the performance of the U.S.Supreme Court after former President Donald Trump (R) appointed three supposed "Conservative" justices, most Republicans are not.  This week, US Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) has flipped the script on the SCOTUS, labeling them "extremist" after praising them for ruling in favor of DACA and for upholding the Affordable Care Act.

Abortion has crept its way back into the center of public discourse this week after the Texas legislature passed an abortion bill that has illegalized all abortion after 6 weeks.  This makes Texas the most ambitious on the issue out of the several southern states that have stiff abortion regulations.

The SCOTUS remained silent on the new law, triggering reproductive rights advocates to restart their epic campaign against Justice Brett Kavanaugh's character, as well as Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Wasserman-Schultz took to Twitter where she called the Texas abortion ban totally "on brand" for the "extremist conservative #SCOTUS majority.":

 

Earlier this year in June, the Supreme Court thwarted another challenge to the Affordable Care Act, prompting Wasserman Schultz to express her elation over the ruling.

“For the third time, the Supreme Court ruled the ACA is the law of the land. Republicans need to call off their war on this vital law which allowed 20 million Americans to access quality affordable health care. They need to stop threatening the 135 million of us who rely on the pre-existing protections it provides, as well as millions more who have free preventative care, like mammograms and colonoscopies. Americans who need health care they can count on won today. It’s time Republicans stop sabotaging the ACA, and help Democrats build on it," stated Wasserman Schultz.

In fact, DWS even said she was "elated" when the court decided "against the GOP administration and in favor of Dreamers," back in June of 2020.

At the time, Justice Amy Coney Barrett was not on the bench, but President Donald Trump's two other appointees, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch were seated.
