With his legacy on the line as ObamaCare is close to being struck down either totally or partially by the Supreme Court, Obama warned the conservative Justices that an overturn of his healthcare would be viewed as an act of “judicial activism”.
From a Washington Post article…“I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is, the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” Obama said during a Rose Garden news conference. “Well, this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.”
The problem, President Obama, is that Supreme Court is supposed to serve as a balance check on the Executive branch (you) and Legislative branch (controlled by Pelosi and Reid in 2010 when Obamacare was passed by only Democrats). The main duty of the Supreme Court—the only court created by the Constitution—is to interpret the Constitution and has the power to overturn a piece of law that it determines unconstitutional.
Barrack Obama, as a former Constitution Law Professor, should know better than making such an arrogant, ignorant statement and showing no respect to the Constitution of the United States.
Can’t wait until June for the Supreme Court’s decision on ObamaCare—whether the individual mandate is unconstitutional (seems like a sure thing) and how much of ObamaCare will be invalidated.
Can’t wait until November 6 when the voters will cast Obama out!
