The Supreme Court giveth but do they also take away?

As 2016 comes to an end and the presidency of Donald J. Trump about to begin, a lot of liberals I know are very worried about what the Supreme Court will do once President Trump appoints a successor to the late Justice Antonin Scalia. They should not be too worried.

Why not? First, the two obvious choices for next Supreme Court justice are both awesome. Appointing either of us to the Supreme Court will rectify the eight-year injustice that we like to call President Obama’s inexplicable failure to name us to the federal bench.
