PA Post: Courts May Be Slow to Take Up and Rule on Constitutional Showdown over Governor’s Emergency Powers – And That’s a Good Thing
The PA Post has good piece about how while both Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania General Assembly want quick action on the issue of Wolf’s emergency powers, the judiciary is likely to proceed slowly and deliberately.
And that’s exactly what lawmakers planned for, as was first reported by Lancaster-blog.
While the slow gears of the judiciary start grinding, businesses are opening back up and defying Wolf and his transgender political appointee, Secretary of Health Rachel Levine’s, lockdown and “phased” reopening.
After a few weeks of most businesses getting back to “normal normal” instead of a limited “new normal” – the holdouts will realize they can’t compete and will also open back up again fully.
And then, even if the courts rule in Wolf’s favor, good luck getting the genie back in the bottle.
There won’t be the political will or capital to try to close the state back down, and another push could endanger Democrats at the polls on Nov. 3, up to and including costing Democrat nominee Joe Biden the Keystone State, and therefore possibly the presidential election.
