    Santorum at the Supreme Court: Romney "uniquely disqualified" to attack health care law - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum came to the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday to lambast President Obama's Affordable Care Act and rival Mitt Romney for signing the Massachusetts blueprint for the national law.

    "There's one candidate who is uniquely disqualified to make the case" against the law, Santorum said of Romney. "It's the reason I'm here and he's not. The reason that I talk about Obamacare and its impact on the economy and on fundamental freedoms, and Mitt Romney doesn't. It's because he can't, because he supported government-run health care as governor of Massachusetts."

    The Supreme Court is hearing three days of arguments on the constitutionality of the law. With the famous building as a backdrop, Santorum spoke for 15 minutes to a thick crowd of reporters and demonstrators.

    The Federal Government is uniquely constricted by the U.S. Constitution--whereas states with their own State Supreme courts give more lee-way on issues for Romneycare--that's why there was never any court decision on this. Under amendment 10 of the U.S. Constitution---states reserve their right to make their own decisions--and that is why most of us are required by our states to carry auto liability insurance.

    Santorum appears to have a different view; he says Romney cannot speak out against a NATIONAL health care mandate because Romney supported a STATE mandate.....:eusa_angel:

    Rick Santorum standing on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to give speech's about the constitutionality of something is laughable.

    After all--it is he that is still arguing with a 1965 U.S. Supreme court decision (Griswold v Connecticut) saying that "states have the right to ban birth control contraceptives--and that supreme court activism are giving us to many rights"----:badgrin:
    Rick Santorum: States Should Have Power To Ban Birth Control, Sodomy

    I could go on all day long with statements like "I don't believe in the separation of church and state" coming out of the mouth of Rick Santorum--but this guy is so fundamentally ignorant of the basic principles of our founding father's document--it makes him unfit to make a single comment about their actions--or attack anyone else's.
