The President Backs Obamacare

The constitutionality of President Obama’s signature legislation the “Patient protection and Affordable Care Act” is being deliberated upon by the Supreme Court. Final arguments are to be heard by Wednesday and a verdict is expected in June, just in time to play a starring role in this year’s Presidential campaign. The Republicans are already scathing about the Act and have vowed to dismantle it if they were to come to power; this is an interesting about face for Mr. Romney as this Act has its origins in a law that he had passed as Governor of Massachusetts.

President Obama has recently stated that a rejection of this law would be an act of “Judicial Activism” and that it is not the place of the Justices of the Supreme Court to overturn a law that has been passed by elected representatives of the people. In a strongly worded statement the President reminded conservative commentators of their staunch opposition to what they see as Judicial overreach and a lack of judicial restraint.
