Obamacare's 2,700 Pages Prove Too Much For Justices

When the SC oversteps its authority, congress needs to make the correction through a new law, an amendment or impeachment. When congress fails to act, we need to elect representatives that will or we end up with a bastardized constitution as we have now.

During the long, painful debate that led to the passage of Obamacare, Republican lawmakers made a single request of their colleagues, the press and the public: Please read the 2,700-page bill. That request was mostly ignored, even by many of the members of Congress who voted for what became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Now, it's someone else's turn not to read the bill. In oral arguments before the Supreme Court recently, some justices made it abundantly clear that they, too, haven't read the entire law, even if they are considering a constitutional question that could kill the whole thing.
