RIP Ruth

“Ginsburg’s opinions for the court were influential, regardless of whether she was writing for the majority or dissenting. In the 2007 case Lilly Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., for example, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that a woman could not sue her former employer for paying her male counterparts more than her because she had not filed suit claiming discrimination within a 180-day period required by law. In an opinion joined by three other justices, dissented vociferously, arguing that such a requirement was nonsensical because it might take a female employee longer than 180 days to find out that she was being paid less than her male counterparts. In her dissent, Ginsburg directly appealed to Congress to change the law.” https://www.aol.com/article/news/2020/09/18/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-dead-at-87/24624225/

Who will the raise the banner next?

When was the last time Congress actually legislated anything but authorizations to print more money to spend on bailing out their corporate sponsors and banks who fund them?
