But there is a silver lining for liberals as well: in much the same way that the conservative court of the 1930s forced Franklin D. Roosevelt and his allies to construct the constitutional foundations of the New Deal state, today’s court challenges the White House, the Democrats and the liberal legal community to reassert a constitutional vision of a national government empowered “to promote the general Welfare” and — in Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s terse formula — “to regulate the national economy in the interest of those who labor to sustain it.”

Can anyone explain this sentence to me ?Is the use of comma before 'today's court' is right ?I am kind of lost...

The comma is right! the basic idiom here is "In much the same way that X does Y, M does N." This is a formal, but correct, way of drawing a comparisons between two situations--in this case, what the conservative court forced FDR to do and what the modern court is forcing the Obama White House to do.

Interesting question, and good luck!
