Sen. Stupid err….Rand Paul (R-Ky), doesn’t think that the opinion of the Supreme Court makes something constitutional….or not:
“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care right.”
Interesting. Then perhaps we should revisit Bush v. Gore. Or Citizens United. Oh that it were so….
As Ashby notes, the Supreme Court is indeed the ultimate authority on the constitutionality or lack thereof, of a thing:
Actually, that’s exactly what it means. For all intents and purposes, when the Supreme Court declares something constitutional, it will remain as such until the Supreme Court declares otherwise or the constitution is amended.
