Senator Chris McDaniel today released the following statement regarding the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on ObamaCare:
“The people of this country have once again been blindsided by the U.S. Supreme Court, as the majority opinion inexplicably ignored longstanding Constitutional restraints, including the separation of powers doctrine.
Had the Court employed the usual rules of interpretation, Obamacare would have incurred an injurious, perhaps fatal blow. However, the majority opinion simply rewrote the law in an effort to save it. Interestingly enough, the Constitution does not grant such authority to the Court. All federal legislative powers belong to Congress, alone.
When the Supreme Court begins rewriting legislation to rescue it, as they did in its previous rulings on Obamacare and again today, then we all have to question if we are seeing a ruling class that has successfully grasped the reins of a runaway and uncontrollable government.”
