Some people object to Obamacare’s constitutionality. A few Democrats retort,  “But that’s been settled — by the Supreme Court.” And then they descend into name-calling.

Forget, for the moment, the constitutionality of judicial review, or the coherence of the implied univocal dependence upon same. Just ask yourself a near-parallel question: In the late 1850s, would you have defended the Fugitive Slave Act by saying “the constitutionality of the act was determined by the Dred Scott Decision”?

No, of course you wouldn’t.

Methinks Democrats doth attest too much . . . authority to the very fallible Supreme Court.
