It’s not the first time this Dictator has intimidated the Supreme Court. During his State of the Union Address in 2010 Obama chided the Justices for their Citizen’s United ruling where the Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment protects political speech, whether from an individual or a corporation.
When Obama Care went before the Supreme Court to be decided if it was constitutional or not again Obama made an attempt to intimidate the Supreme Court. Here is part of what he said:
“Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress.”
“And I would like to remind conservative commentators that for years what we have heard is that the biggest problem is judicial activism and that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”
Does this type of intimidation have it’s effects on the Justice’s? Not if they are following the text of what was presented to them but it’s probably like anything else, it comes down to the spine of any person. It has been said that Chief Justice John Roberts was going to originally vote against Obama Care but eventually voted for it. You decide. There are many posts on the subject.
Now Dictator Obama is once again putting his mouth in action. In King v. Burwell, the case questioning the legality of Obama Care subsidies given to people living in states without state based exchanges Obama said the following: “This should be an easy case. Frankly, it probably shouldn’t even have been taken up,” Obama said.”
“Obama again voiced that confidence on Monday, and urged the court not to rule otherwise.”
“He said it’s safe to “assume” the court will do what most legal scholars expect and “play it straight.” Obama said it has been well-documented that Congress never intended to exclude people who went through the federal exchange.” But they did, they left it out very obviously. The Justice’s have to vote on the text of the law presented not what Obama wants to force them to vote on.
Now how can we not forget what Obama Care architect Jonathan Gruber said who was “infamous for saying the law passed thanks to the “stupidity of the American voter,” has repeatedly said people living in states that do not have their own exchanges cannot receive tax subsidies for Obama Care. He’s argued multiple times the law was set up to force states into setting up exchanges.”
“I think what’s important to remember politically about this is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits.”
Now I would think that during the course of their everyday day lives the Justice’s watch and follow the news like we all do. How can they not see that We The People have been lied too and made fun of once again by Obama and his cronies in this case being the Obama Care architect Jonathan Gruber and Obama has the audacity to scold the Supreme Court as to how they should vote on this case. What the supreme Court should do is commence prison time for this Dictator-In-Chief, never mind pass more lawlessness.
