The 'Settled Law' Argument

"The most hilarious part of the 'settled law' argument is that it's coming from the left."

Re: The Left

Columnist Ann Coulter: “No major legislation has ever been passed like Obamacare – and I’m using the word ‘passed’ pretty loosely. It became law without both houses ever voting on the same bill. (Say, is the Constitution considered ‘settled law’?) … The most hilarious part of the ‘settled law’ argument is that it’s coming from the left, for whom nothing is ever ‘settled’ until they get their way…. Liberals seem to believe our founding fathers sought to create a country where the pushiest always win. (That’s why they’re the party of trial lawyers.) They want the nation’s policies to be determined by a never-ending co-op board meeting dominated by the most obnoxious shareholders. … Liberals will fight until they get their way – and, as soon as they do, they announce their one victory is ‘settled law.’ That’s what happened with Obamacare. … When Democrats refuse to give up on an issue, it’s against the will of the people with one party laughing, ‘Ha ha! We have 60 votes!’”

It's Right. It's Free.
