Sen. Rand Paul: ObamaCare Isn’t Constitutional ‘Just Because A Couple People On The Supreme Court’ Say So

In the wake of today’s big ObamaCare decision, Democrats breathed many a sigh of relief this morning, while Republicans were generally upset about their defeat. And then there were those who don’t agree that a Supreme Court ruling means a law is constitutional. Namely, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Just because “a couple people on the Supreme Court” say something is constitutional, he said, doesn’t mean that it is.

Paul issued the following statement:

“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,” Sen. Paul said.

“Obamacare is wrong for Americans. It will destroy our health care system. This now means we fight every hour, every day until November to elect a new President and a new Senate to repeal Obamacare,” he continued.

Arguing President Barack Obama‘s policy isn’t a good one, is one thing. Dismissing a Supreme Court decision regarding constitutionality of a law is quite another.
