After claiming that overturning the health care law would be "judicial activism" and calling the justices "unelected" (which is kind of the check and balance set in place by the Constitution) he's doubling down on the intimidation today.
...the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly elected legislature, our Congress.I'm sorry, what? SCOTUS is not there to rubber-stamp your laws. They are there to decide the Constitutionality of the laws that are passed. While I don't necessarily agree on a lot of their decisions, their role in the review of laws is very explicit in the balance of powers.
And now, just what I thought might happen.
The federal courts kind of want to know why the President thinks that they can't strike down a federal law. I'd kind of like to know the answer to that one myself. Constitutional scholar. Uh huh.
