Sen. Hatch blasts Obama for ‘judicial activism’ comment
The Raw Story April 3, 2012
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Monday criticized President Barack Obama for saying it would be “judicial activism” for the Supreme Court to overturn the health care reform law.
However, at almost the same time last year, Hatch was condemning the President for nominating “activist judges.” At the time, he said “the Constitution belongs to the people, not to judges.” Later in 2011, he blasted the “avant garde liberal activists who will legislate from the bench.” He also opposed the nomination of judges because of their alleged “judicial activism” in 2010.
Obama said Monday that the “unelected” Supreme Court should not to take the “extraordinary” and “unprecedented” step of striking down the Affordable Care Act.
