President Obama warns Supreme Court, misleads public on Obamacare

Unconstitutional.

A decision that the Supreme Court makes, and NOT the President.

Balance of Power.

The mechanism put in place to prevent the abuse of power.

President Obama offered an arrogant or naive “comment” or “advice” to the Judicial Branch:

“For years, what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or the lack of judicial restraint, that an un-elected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law,” he said at a news conference. The health-care case is a good example of just that, he said. “And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.”

The WSJ said:

The president’s comments indicate how he might deal with the political fallout should he lose, framing the court as a potential villain that substitutes its judgment for that of elected legislators, and Americans who lose benefits of the law as victims.

“It must be nice living in a fantasy world where every law you like is constitutional and every Supreme Court decision you don’t is ‘activist.'” – Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah)
