Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Friday slammed the gay marriage and Obamacare rulings by the Supreme Court as “naked and shameless judicial activism” and called on Congress to support a constitutional amendment leaving the definition of marriage to the states.
“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” the 2016 presidential candidate told Sean Hannity on his radio program.
“Six justices joined the Obama administration,” he said, referring to Thursday’s decision upholding nationwide tax subsidies for the Affordable Care Act. “You now have Barack 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.”
Sebelius resigned last year as Secretary of Health and Human Services over the disastrous Obamacare rollout.
Cruz then turned his attention to Friday’s 5-4 ruling saying that Americans have a constitutional right to gay marriage in all 50 states.
“Today, this radical decision purporting to down the marriage laws of every state,” he began. “It has no connection to the United States Constitution.
“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.”
