Unprecedented: Obama Begins Pre-Emptive Political Attack on Supreme Court's Possible Overturning of ObamaCare, Branding That an "Unprecedented Extraordinary Event"

And he claims a "strong" popular majority supported the law. What?

"Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary event by overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress."

ObamaCare passed by like 10 votes in the House. Furthermore, that was a very temporary minority-- the public did not like ObamaCare, and protested their hearts out to convey that message.

The Democrats defied democratic norms by passing it. They did not uphold such norms.

The public, given its chance to weigh in on ObamaCare through voting, immediately delivered the Democrats an electoral shellacking, kicking over 60 of them out of Congress.

Meanwhile, the 30th consecutive poll shows the public favoring repealing the law over keeping it by double digits.

In what sense is ObamaCare actually the democratically-determined choice of the public?

In no senses at all. The public was against it then and remain against t.

The Democratic Party broke faith with democracy itself, choosing to rule against the wishes of the public, rather than with those wishes, and our Resident Obama gets in front of a podium and claims it would put a dagger into the heart of democracy to overturn this monstrosity?
