Issues a Wrap-Up for Texas Republicans On the Final Day of SCOTUS Proceedings
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has recorded a special audio wrap-up for Texas Republicans with the latest on the ObamaCare challenge which was concluded today at the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.
“Hi, this is Greg Abbott coming to you from just outside the United States Supreme Court. We just wrapped up our third day of oral arguments about the ObamaCare lawsuit. Once again it was another great day for Texas and our claims that Congress over-reached their authority. Very powerful comments came from Justice Kennedy today where he frequently returned back to the theme of federalism. As well as his fellow justices agreeing with him that federalism is a fundamental principle that Congress is over-reaching. The feel I got from the arguments today as well as from the entire week and that is the Supreme Court is ready to strike a blow in favor of liberty and put limitations on Congress’ power to regulate Texas and other governments around the country. We are now concluding the oral arguments. We will be looking for a decision coming out in the later part of June -- hopefully in favor of the state of Texas. We will continue fighting for you, your liberty, your pocketbooks and your taxpayer dollars.”

So now, as a result of leaked information from the liberal clerks on the Supreme Court, Obama goes out in front of the cameras and tells the nation a big, fat whopper of a lie. He says it would be "unprecedented" for the Supreme Court to strike down a law passed by the Congress.
Then he later tries to walk that lie back by saying he actually meant "in the modern era".
It took about half a minute to find this case that refutes his lie:
"In United States v. Lopez 514 U.S. 549 (1995), a federal law mandating a "gun-free zone" on and around public school campuses was struck down because, the Supreme Court ruled, there was no clause in the Constitution authorizing it. This was the first modern Supreme Court opinion to limit the government's power under the Commerce Clause."
I say lie, because he is a Harvard Law School cum laude graduate who taught constitutional law and should know that what he said was a total lie. Either that or he is really stupid and a total fake.
