Ted Cruz: ‘Some Of The Darkest 24 Hours In Our Nation’s History’ (Audio)
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Sean Hannity Friday, “Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history.”
Cruz also said Congress does not have the courage to stand up and fight this lawlessness. Cruz said Republican leaders were “overjoyed” they didn’t have to stand up and are privately popping champagne.
The Daily Caller reported:
Continuing his critique of the Supreme Court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and same-sex marriage, Sen. Ted Cruz said Friday that the rulings mark “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nations history.”
Cruz made the comments in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show Friday afternoon.
“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” Cruz said.
“I couldn’t say it more eloquently,” Hannity responded.
“Yesterday and today were both naked and shameless judicial activism,” Cruz said. “Neither decision — the decision yesterday rewriting Obamacare for the second time. Six justices joined the Obama administration. You now have President Obama, Kathleen Sebelius and six justices responsible for forcing this failed disaster of a law on millions of Americans, and simply rewriting the law in a way that is fundamentally contrary to their judicial oaths.”
“And then today, this radical decision purporting to strike down the marriage laws of every state. It has no connection to the United States Constitution. They are simply making it up,” Cruz said. “It is lawless, and in doing so, they have undermined the fundamentally legitimacy of the United States Supreme Court.”
