SUPREME COURT REWRITES LAW

1435245675938

(Washington, DC) - The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which focuses on constitutional law, said today’s 6-3 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court backing the Obama Administration’s health care law is troubling because the Court did not interpret the law, the majority rewrote it.

“This decision is disappointing and troubling,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, which filed an amicus brief challenging ObamaCare. “Unfortunately, the majority of the Court failed to apply the law as written. The Court instead rewrote the law, something it did not have the constitutional power to do. It is troubling that the high court backed the Obama Administration’s overreach in its ongoing effort to rewrite or suspend portions of the ACA (Affordable Care Act), in violation of the separation of powers. The Court clearly over stepped its authority. That is reflected by Justice Scalia in this line from his dissent: ‘We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.’”

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, is based in Washington, D.C.
