Senator Ted Cruz: Supreme Court Rulings are Contrary to Judicial Oaths

Lawless sums up the latest rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court.  These community organizers in black robes created and rewrote laws.  Their fabrications deserve no respect, or fidelity.  Senator Ted Cruz summed it up best.

"Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation's history," Cruz said after Hannity asked how he was doing, according to audio posted by Mediaite.

Cruz went on to describe both rulings as "naked and shameless judicial activism."

The first of the two decisions Cruz blasted on the radio came Thursday when the Supreme Court upheld a provision of the Affordable Care Act. In that ruling, the justices rejected an argument that the way the so-called Obamacare legislation was written prevents subsidized insurance in states where the federal government has set up healthcare exchanges.

According to Cruz, this decision amounted to the judges "rewriting" the law in support of President Barack Obama's agenda.

"The decision yesterday rewriting Obamacare ... for the second time six justices joined the Obama administration," Cruz said. "You now have Barack Obama, [former United States Secretary of Health and Human Services] Kathleen Sebelius, and six justices responsible for forcing this failed disaster of a law on millions of Americans and simply rewriting the law in a way that is fundamentally contrary to their judicial oaths."

We should show as much fidelity to the Supreme Court’s rulings as they have for the law as written.
