Folks, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has done something highly unusual for the normally mild-mannered judge—writing the dissent for the court’s 5-4 ruling to overturn decades of precedent in a case regarding tax law and state sovereignty, Breyer plainly noted this “decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the Court will overrule next.” In short, this is a warning shot from the new conservative majority on the bench and Roe v. Wade is being tee’d up to be overturned, among others.

Former Obama White House lawyer Daniel Jacobsen noted on Twitter just how unprecedented Breyer’s comments truly are for a Supreme Court justice.

Jacobson was not alone. Legal experts and pundits alike are sounding the alarm. Democrats must take back the Senate and the judiciary AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Here’s a round-up of reactions to the court’s precedent-busting decision.

Michael Li of NYU Law notes this could shift the court for an entire generation, or more.

There is no greater task than taking back the Senate. This is an uphill task because right now we are locked in a broken system where rural whites have a near permanent lock on the majority.

Unless we take back the Senate, we are truly screwed. And it all started with a stolen Supreme Court seat.
