people's voice on the supreme court
Supremely just

Re: “Bad faith confirmed” (editorial, May 11): Bad faith on Merrick Garland was clear from the start, because the Republicans’ claimed principle — “the people should decide” — made no sense. The people did decide, when they elected the President, that he should fill any Supreme Court vacancies that arise; just as they decided, when they elected the vice-president, that he should fill a presidential vacancy, should one arise. Letting the people decide means respecting decisions they made.
