President Obama Holds Press Conference And Takes Shot At Supreme Court

President Obama holds a press conference with President Felipe Calderon of Mexico and Prime Minster Stephen Harper of Canada, and the talk turned to the Supreme Court and the likely hood that they may turn down his signature achievement, Obamacare. President Obama said, “I am confident the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically-elected congress,” President Obama said at a White House event in the Rose Garden. “And I’d just remind conservative commentators that, for years, what we have 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. “Well, this is a good example, and I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step,” he said. “As I said, we are confident this will be over — this will be upheld. 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 added. He has made it clear that if they do strike it down he would address that during the campaign.
