Appeals court fires back at Obama's comments on health care case - Crossroads - CBS News And why is Obama and his idiot toadies saying the healthcare bill was "bi-partisan." That is the biggest howler of a LIE that they have told yet. From what I can see only one Republican voted for it. Everyone else voted NO! That's HARDLY bi-partisan. But the idea that the USSC can't strike down a law as Unconstittuional is ridiculous. Line Item Veto was struck down by the USSC and it was a VERY popular idea. The people wanted it, and the GOP were ready to deliver it, despite the fact that power would go to Clinton. USSC struck it down, outright. I was very disappointed at the time, that happened, but that's the way the ball bounces. But, for Obama to act like this is Judicial activism, is even a bigger howler than calling Obamacare bi-partisan. This won't be the Justices making law from the bench. This will be the justices exercising the power that Marbury vs. Madison gave them. The power to strike down Unconstitutional laws. What Obama did was basically have a temper tantrum is public. He's sure the USSC won't let him have his way, so he's being a sore loser about it. I love the court fighting back on this. It's about time.
