Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz said on The Sean Hannity that with the Supreme Court’s rulings on gay marriage and Obamacare, the United States had seen the worst 24 hours in its existence.
“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” Cruz said.
Host Sean Hannity seemed to agree. “I couldn’t say it more eloquently.”
“Yesterday and today were both naked and shameless judicial activism,” Cruz continued. “Neither decision– the decision yesterday rewriting Obamacare… for the second time. Six justices joined the Obama administration, you now have Barack Obama, Kathleen Sebelius, and six justices responsible for forcing failed disaster of a law on millions of Americans, and simply rewriting the law in a way that is fundamentally contrary to their judicial oath
“And then today, this radical decision purporting to down the marriage laws of every state. It has no connection to the United States Constitution,” he said. “They are simply making it up. It is lawless, and in doing so, they have undermined the fundamental legitimacy of the United States Supreme Court.”
