    Obama warns justices against 'activism' on health law

    Obama taking his politics to the SCOTUS?

    The case is over...they voted...they know the outcome...Is Obama trying to influence thier decision?

    Video in the story...

    Judicial activism is legislating from the bench. Striking down laws that are unconstitutional is part of their duties as Supreme Court Justices.

    No.

    He’s simply reminding conservatives that when in the past the Court has struck down laws the right approves of – such as laws limiting individual liberty and expanding the power of the state – republicans have whined that those rulings manifested ‘judicial activism’ where judges are ‘legislating from the bench.’ In such cases conservatives further complain that the court has failed to exercise judicial restraint and exhibits disrespect for the will of the people as expressed through their elected representatives.

    In order for conservatives to be consistent and avoid hypocrisy, therefore, they’d be required to denounce the striking down of the ACA as well.

    You do NOTE that Obama was talking about 'unelected people and policy'?

    (Noting that SCOTUS Justices are nominated, and vetted by the Congress)?

    What does he think ObamaCare and IPAB is? Unelected people making decisions for others about thier lives.
