BREAKING: Supreme Court Unanimously Strikes Down Obama’s Power Grab
President Obama has had an up and down relationship with the Supreme Court. He publicly admonished them during his 2010 State of the Union address over theirCitizens United decision, but sang their praises when they upheld Obamacare by ruling it a tax.
He may not like future rulings from the Court on Obamacare though, as they are considering the Hobby Lobby case regarding the abortion mandate provision of Obamacare and how it infringes on religious liberty. They may also soon be considering a Constitutional challenge of the healthcare law on the grounds that it violated the ‘Origination Clause‘ by being introduced in the Senate instead of the House, where tax bills are required to begin.
