Shortly after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the text of the ObamaCare law didn’t really matter and that it means whatever the anti-constitutionalists want it to mean, senator Ted Cruz made an epic speech on the Senate floor in which he blasted these “robed Houdinis.”
“Today’s decision in King v. Burwell,” Cruz said, “is judicial activism. For the second time in just a few years, a handful of unelected judges has rewritten the text of ObamaCare in order to force that failed law upon millions of Americans. The first time, the court ignored federal law and magically transformed a statutory penalty into a tax. Today these robed Houdinis have transmogrified a federal exchange into an exchange, quote, ‘established by the state.’ This is lawless.”
Strong words, but he wasn’t done yet. He quoted Justice Scalia — one of the few reliably conservatives on the bench — who said that “words no longer have meaning if an exchange that is not established by a state, is established by the state.” Justice Scalia continued, as quoted by Cruz: “We should call this law SCOTUSCare.” Cruz: “I agree. If this were a bankruptcy case or any other case of ordinary statutory interpretation, the result would have been 9-0, with the court unanimously reversing the Obama administration’s illegal actions. But instead, politics intervened.”
The senator from Texas and candidate for president added:
“If those justices want to become legislators, I invite them to resign and run for office.”
In recent months, some conservatives had put their hopes on the Supreme Court, hoping the nine justices there (or at least a majority) would uphold the law and the Constitution. Radio show host Mark Levin warned against that from day one. He said, time and again, that the Supreme Court — or any other court for that matter — couldn’t be trusted. These “men in black” have done more to destroy the Constitution than any other branch of government, the presidency included. After all, it’s SCOTUS’ job to intervene when a president goes too far. Instead, these political activists have done their best to uphold every single unconstitutional act by the president and Congress.
That’s why it’s time to promote a book: Men in Black, How the Supreme Court is Destroying America. You can find the book on Amazon and the audio version on the Apple Store.
My advice to you: buy it. It’s a great book by Levin. In it, he explains that SCOTUS has worked to destroy the Constitution for decades already. Yesterday’s ruling is just one of many examples of such illegal behavior.
