Scotus Rules 9-0 Obama's "Recess" Appointments To NLRB Illegal

We have become so used to gridlock it almost seems a way of life
House and Senate locked in never ending strife
Never before have we seen such rancor and civility loss
No matter the problem, bipartisanship gets the toss
Even the Supreme Court has not been immune from the chasm of the left versus right divide
Too many times its decisions are handed down in a five vote majority and four on the dissenting side
Today the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in one voice
In a ruling that all business will rejoice
Canning v. NLRB held that Obama’s picks to the NLRB violated the law
His determination of recess was totally flawed
When the Senate states it is in session no matter how brief
An imperial President cannot treat the Constitution as his personal fief
Businesses will no longer be shaking in their boots
Facing a NLRB with strong majority union roots
At least our President quickly expressed disappointment and dismay
But in the same breath his spokesmen indicated the ruling he would obey
But our President still has his phone and he still has his pen
Hell bent to change laws or not enforce them again and again
But this decision is clearly a setback to an Imperial Presidency grab for power
Might even embolden more Senate Blues to no longer in front of him cower
