    The sentence cannot be found in the Constitution, but it best captures one of the fundamental democratic principles the Constitution exists to protect: “Voters should choose their representatives, not the other way around.”

    After months of bruising political struggle, Congress has passed the trade promotion authority bill that President Barack Obama requested. Obama’s signature on it will empower his negotiators to cut the most advantageous trade agreements possible with 11 other countries in the Pacific Rim because all parties now know that the final deal cannot be undone by amendments or a filibuster in Congress.

    In issuing on Friday one of the most significant rulings of this century, the Supreme Court didn’t stake out the strongest legal grounds available to it — but it got to the just result, finding that the 14th Amendment requires states to license same-sex marriages. This is a signal moment in the advancement of civil rights, one that will not come without disagreement and controversy, but one that the country is ready for.

    CHARLESTON, S.C. — By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

    WASHINGTON — Conservatives are dismayed about the Supreme Court’s complicity in rewriting the Affordable Care Act — its ratification of the IRS’ disregard of the statute’s plain and purposeful language. But they have contributed to this outcome. Their decades of populist praise of judicial deference to the political branches has borne this sour fruit.

    In a chilling photo on a website, accused murderer and racist Dylann Roof stares into the camera while holding a Confederate flag. Since he allegedly shot nine African-American worshipers to death at a historic Charleston, South Carolina, church, the country has been wrapped in debate about what the old battle flag symbolizes and whether it should be displayed anywhere outside a museum.

    In his powerful dissenting opinion from Friday’s same-sex marriage decision, Chief Justice John Roberts asks an excellent question: “Just who do we think we are?” That question deserves an answer.

    The Supreme Court handed President Barack Obama a major victory Thursday when the justices voted 6-3 to uphold the administration’s interpretation of a key provision of the Affordable Care Act. The decision means that millions of Americans who were at risk of losing their health insurance if the court had ruled against the act will be now allowed to keep their coverage. And it all but assures that the president’s signature health care legislation, which Republicans have repeatedly tried and failed to undermine, is effectively here to stay.
