I remember my disappointment at President GHW Bush when he signed “campaign finance reform” saying he didn’t think it was Constitutional - but that was for the SCOTUS to decide.

No bonehead - we elect a President with a particular viewpoint in order that he NOT sign legislation which he thinks is unconstitutional.

My husband and I were discussing this just yesterday. They're all sworn in to office under oath, an oath to uphold the Constitution. If SCOTUS finds Obamacare unconstitutional, why are they not penalized, in any way, for violating the Constitution?

As do I. Frankly, I was ready to support his impeachment for that, not for the reasons the insane leftists had, but because he knowingly signed legislation he thought was unconstitutional.
