“Contradictory to her 2010 confirmation testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, recently released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents indicate that Justice Kagan actively participated with her Obama Administration colleagues in formulating a defense of PPACA,” the letter said.
The House members signing their letter to the Judiciary Committee calling for an investigation of Kagan’s involvement in Obamacare noted in the letter that federal law prohibits a Supreme Court Justice from participating in a case where her impartiality might be reasonably questioned or where she expressed an opinion on the matter while serving in government office.
Ooh .. I hope they’ve nailed her dodge and spin at hearings.
She is guilty as sin,but no sense bringing it up until we hold all three branches.
If federal law prohibits a SCOTUS justice from participating in a case where her impartiality might be reasonably questioned, then there is NO DOUBT - NONE - that Kagan and Sotomayor both violated that law when they took part in the conferences for any eligibility cases, since their very seats on SCOTUS were at stake in those cases.
If they’re serious about seeing justice done on Obamacare, they should be investigating that. Both of Obama’s appointees have violated the federal law already, if what these reps are saying is true. They should go after them. I wonder what the penalty is.
