Rand Paul, idiot protector of the special interests
That's the thing about pandering: It often makes you look really, really stupid.
Sen. Rand Paul doesn’t think the Supreme Court gets the last word on what’s constitutional.The Kentucky Republican belittled the high court’s health care decision as the flawed opinion of just a “couple people.”
“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional.”Funny story, Rand: That thing you said in a press release that doesn't make a law constitutional? "People on the Supreme Court declar[ing] something to be ‘constitutional’ "? Turns out, that's exactly how we here in the United States determine whether or not a law is constitutional. And we've been doing it that way since the 1700s.
So, to review, the Supreme Court, not embarrassing junior senators from Kentucky, determines what is and isn't constitutional. For more information, see Article III of the Constitution.
