Democrats say we must accept ObamaCare, because it was legally passed by the Legislative branchand signed into law by the country's leader. Well, so was Russia's law against homosexual propaganda. So, does the Obama Administration also think all Americans should accept that law as settled too? Will we see Obama tell all protesters, in the run-up to the Olympics, that they must accept that "settled law" too, and should stop their childish protests against it?
Oboingo & the Democrats seem to think it's OK for everyone to protest and demand roll-back of some laws, but not ObamaCare or DOMA.
Oh, the hypocrisy.
Legislation to build a LONG border fence along the Mexican border was settled law at one point as well. Somehow it got de-funded...
Obama and his dem stormtroopers aren't real good at logic, are they?
The DOM act was “settled law” too!
Slavery was “settled law” as well.
A law that originated in the Senate and was not voted on by the House after ‘conference’ but ‘deemed passed’ by the House Majority leader is not a law in my book.
Secondly, a law that originated in the Senate as I said that was ruled a TAX by the SC is retroactively a tax bill in my book. As such, originated by the Senate was a violation of the Constitutional dictate that ALL tax/financial bills originate in the HOUSE.
It is not a law; it is treason.
So was ‘Prohibition’. But is was repealed!
And what about existing immigration laws that the Obama administration refuses to enforce in Arizona and California, then attempts to prosecute local law enforcement agencies for their attempts at enforcement? Isn’t that also settled law?
When did we allow women to vote?
ObamaCare is the law of the land. . .”settled law”. . .like that is supposed to stop debate and end all discussion to repeal or amend.
Jim Crow segregation laws were also the law of the land too, but that didnt mean efforts to repeal or amend them were to be halted because the Supreme Court held them constitutional.
Slavery and prohibition were “settled law.”
So was Dred Scott.
so was slavery...and prohibition....
The 2nd Amendment is settled law, but the Left keeps trying to subvert it anyway.
If it’s settled law, why has Soetoro been changing it piece by piece? Sounds very unsettled to me.
There is no such thing as “settled law.”
The people have it within their power to alter or repeal any statute through their elected representatives.
And the House of Representatives can choose to withhold or eliminate funds from any agency or department it chooses. And neither the senate nor the president can do anything (within the law) about it.
Here’s settled law. If you come illegally into our country the government must deport you.
Neah. They took the money - and spent it other stuff. Claimed there was no law that said it HAD to be spent on the border fence.
