"This ruling is bigger than people think. It means O can't bypass the Senate for one and for two it invalidates all the NLRB's rulings from last year."
It may be even bigger than YOU think.
After all, with nearly 300 such appointments being made between 1867 and 2004, you may be able to go back and invalidate thousands of rules and regulations made over the past century and a half.
Of course, normally, the problem would be that such a ruling comes back to bite the next GOP president in the rear, since dems will be salivating to block appointments when their turn comes....
however, considering the current state of the GOP, that is likely to be at least 12 years down the line, so I guess it's not something they need to worry about.
