Obama Tries to Bully Court Into Ruling for Obamacare

Because that’s the Chicago way.

President Obama Monday continued to the White House tactic – begun last week by Josh Earnest,  and echoing tactics used during the last Obamacare case – of trying to bully the Supreme Court into siding with his position on Obamacare in a case that will be decided within days.

…this should be an easy case. Frankly, it probably shouldn’t even have been taken up. And since we’re going to get a ruling pretty quick, I think it’s important for us to go ahead and assume that the Supreme Court is going to do what most legal scholars who’ve looked at this would expect them to do.

I’m optimistic that the Supreme Court will play it straight when it comes to the interpretation.

…In an interview with “Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly, Napolitano attacked Obama’s statement to a news conference in Germany Monday that the case the Supreme Court should never even have accepted the King v. Burwell case challenging the subsidies that are key to Obamacare’s existence…

…“He thinks he’s going to lose, and he’s trying to downplay the significance of that loss and disrespect the court,” Napolitano said.
“Guess what, Mr. President, the Supreme Court and not the president has the final word on the meaning of the law and its consistency with the Constitution. That’s been the law of the land for 230 years.”…


Update: On Facebook Senator Mike Lee wrote:

“#Obamacare was unconstitutional as written. If it wasn’t for the Supreme Court rewriting the law twice to save it we wouldn’t be dealing with issues raised by King v. Burwell. It is odd that the president is criticizing the Court for hearing an additional case on Obamacare after the Court effectively saved the law in the first place.”
