Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare

Dear Senator Ted Cruz:

The US Congress passed a law called the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare.

The US Supreme Court has ruled twice that Congress, the people's voice, passed that law and the president signed it.

That Sen. Cruz, is how the US political system works.

All the Court did was say that Congress has the authority to pass laws such as this.

You seem to think, incorrectly, that the Court is "legislating." It is NOT. It is affirming the Constitutional authority of Congress to enact legislation.

Every candidate for president in 2016 needs to think hard about reversing decisions of Congress. Imagine what it would be like if each time the opposition gains a majority in Congress it reverses the laws passed by previous Congresses. It would be chaos.

US businesses and Americans would be whip lashed by uncertainty. It would be like third world countries or France and Italy during their worst periods of political instability.
