Supreme Court decisions affirming ObamaCare and granting a national right to same sex marriage have brought “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” Sen. Ted Cruz said Friday.
“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” he said on The Sean Hannity Show, the Fox pundit’s radio program, on Friday.
“Yesterday and today were both naked and shameless judicial activism.”
While many other Republican presidential hopefuls sent out statements deriding the Friday decision, Cruz’s campaign did not.
He took to the Senate floor to slam the Affordable Care Act ruling on Thursday, panning it as “disgraceful.”
“Six justices joined the Obama administration, you now have Barack Obama, Kathleen Sebelius, and six justices responsible for forcing failed disaster of a law on millions of Americans, and simply rewriting the law in a way that is fundamentally contrary to their judicial oath,” he told Hannity Friday.
He then shifted to Friday’s decision.
“Today, this radical decision purporting to down the marriage laws of every state. It has no connection to the United States Constitution,” he said.
“They are simply making it up. It is lawless, and in doing so, they have undermined the fundamental legitimacy of the United States Supreme Court.”
