That’s the Supreme Court he’s talking about. He actually said “unintelected”.
“And I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.” Obama said.
It certainly was not passed by a “strong majority” and isn’t every law that the Supreme Court considers a law passed by a “democratically elected congress?”
I am confident this will be upheld because it should be upheld.
And again, that is not just my opinion. That is the opinion of a whole lot of constitutional law professors and academics and judges and lawyers who have examined this law, even if they’re not particularly sympathetic to this piece of legislation or my presidency.
He sure is counting on people being “ignert” as Al Sharpton says.
