Bobby Jindal: I’d toss six Supreme Court justices if I could

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said he would toss out a half-dozen members of the U.S. Supreme Court if given the chance — including a couple of justices nominated to the bench by Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

The recent 5-4 ruling in favor of same-sex marriage and 6-3 ruling in favor of Obamacare subsidies have sparked a conservative backlash against the Supreme Court, including from Mr. Jindal, who said the court appears to be more interested in following public opinion polls than abiding by the Constitution.

    They are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution. They have failed to render decisions soley through the lense of the Constitution and have broken their oath. Gay marriage is soley a state matter and the ACA is clearly not within the scope of the Constitution as well. Basically the supreme court is legislating from the bench without authority. They can only determin the constitutionality of laws passed through congress and signed into law by the President. They don’t get to rewrite laws to suit their fancy. The Constitution is absolutely clear anything not listed in the articles of the Constitution are solely the states responsibility, no exceptions.

    I stand with Gov. Bobby Jindal. When anyone of them do not stand for the Constitution they should be weeded OUT.
