Three Independent Branches?

with one comment

From Fox News, via Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin’s page:

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court on Monday night it should stay away from a high-profile challenge to the 2010 health care law until after a lower court has had a chance to review the case.

Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal wrote, “there is no basis for short-circuiting the normal course of appellate review.” Katyal also says Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law.

Is there no limit to what these yayhoos think they have authority over? First, they think they can ram this whole Health Control thing through, forcing American citizens to purchase a product simply for being an American citizen. Then, despite a ruling that the law is unconstitutional, they claim they will continue to implement the provisions, thus violating the Constitution. And now, they suggest the Supreme Court shouldn’t bother reviewing it? Just where does the President think he is, China?

This is an old game, sure, but just imagine, for one moment if you will, then-President Bush suggesting that the Supreme Court (or any courts for that matter) shouldn’t bother taking up cases aimed at terrorist detentions. What might the reaction have been? Of course, the major media lined up to make us all think Bush was running rampant, ‘shredding the Constitution,’ and all that. Instead, they used existing law, went to court, and argued their case. Why can’t this clown do the same?
