Judicial Watch President: "Call It 'Robertscare'"

June 28, 2012 - 12:57 PM

Judicial Watch Pres.Tom Fitton renames the heath care law “Robertscare.”

Fitton says:

“This Supreme Court majority rewrote Obamacare and then upheld its constitutionality. This decision is monstrous and upends the constitutional limits on federal power. That the Chief Justice would join the Court’s liberal block to legislate from the bench is shocking. Instead of calling the law Obamacare, we can fairly call it ‘Robertscare.’

“Justice Kagan’s controversial decision to participate in this case despite unanswered questions about her role in defending Obamacare while working in the Obama administration also taints the High Court’s decision.

“The Court’s decision will contribute to the public’s concern that our government is out of control and acting without constitutional authority. The rule of law suffered a stinging blow today.”

Editor's Insight: You can't spell "Robertscare" with "scare."
