President Obama and the Supreme Court

President Obama recently said that the Supreme Court should allow Health Care to remain law because Congress passed it overwhelmingly. An elected body made a law that should not be overturned by a group of people who had not been elected. This explains his actions upon his first State of the Union address when he basically snubbed the Supreme Court. He must not believe in the separation of powers that is so essential in checking the power of our government over us. President Obama is just doing what he said he was going to do: “Fundamentally Change America”. Fundamental change indeed when the Supreme Court does not judge laws based upon the Constitution, but upon whatever Congress or the President decide.
