Of course the President has to know that the Supreme Court has the power to review statutes for constitutionality. (Marbury v. Madison, 1803 and STILL GOOD LAW!)
And what is really dopey on the part of the President is seen below in the red text. He wants YOU to think because it was passed by a ‘strong majority of a democratically elected Congress’ (his words) that the statute should necessarily stand and is constitutional.
Is he out of his mind? NOT ONE MEMBER OF CONGRESS READ THE BILL SO NOT ONE HAD ANY CLUE WHAT HE OR SHE WAS VOTING FOR. Is that his “strong majority” upon whom the American people should rely for constitutionality? People who never even read it? Really? That is so ..dopey.
Plus…it was hardly strong…it was just barely passed and not one Republican.
“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,” Obama said.
