President Joe Biden and his administration continue to take political hits. The most recent was courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to CBS News, in a 9-0 unanimous decision, the high court ruled against Biden's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). SCOTUS shot down the agency's ability to regulate "waters of the United States" under the administration's Clean Water Act.
The ruling stemmed from a case called Sackett v. EPA, which involved a group of Idaho landowners.
The high court's decision reversed a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which had sided with the EPA on the issue.
CBS News noted:
The court found that the agency's interpretation of the wetlands covered by the Clean Water Act is "inconsistent" with the law's text and structure, and the law extends only to "wetlands with a continuous surface connection to bodies of water that are 'waters of the United States' in their own right."
Social media was quick to react to the bombshell decision, which was a clear blow to Biden's radical green agenda.
"Major Biden defeat at the Supreme Court today, with SCOTUS nuking the Biden EPA’s absurd attempt to redefine “waters of the U.S.” to give EPA radical new power to regulate any water anywhere. The judgment was 9-0 (while the opinion itself was 5-4)," Sean Davis tweeted.

Another user tweeted, "That is excellent news for property rights. All property owners should be glad to know about this."

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer wasn't happy about the ruling, quickly firing shots at what he called the "MAGA Supreme Court."
“This MAGA Supreme Court is continuing to erode our country’s environmental laws,” Schumer tweeted. "Make no mistake – this ruling will mean more polluted water and more destruction of wetlands."

Make no mistake—this ruling will mean more polluted water, and more destruction of wetlands.
We’ll keep fighting to protect our waters. https://t.co/wlp1LTvZJB

The ruling comes at a time when Biden and his campaign team are desperately attempting to convince Democratic voters to stick with him for the 2024 race.
Between the political beatings and the low polling numbers, not to mention his overall age and health, it seems increasingly unlikely that Biden will have what it takes to win Americans over before the next election.
