(POLITICO) The Republican backlash against President Barack Obama’s health care-SCOTUS remarks shows no sign of subsiding.
In a noon speech today to the Rotary Club of Lexington, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell continued the GOP counteroffensive, telling the president to “back off” the Supreme Court.
“The President crossed a dangerous line this week. And anyone who cares about liberty needs to call him out on it. The independence of the Court must be defended,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said, according to the prepared text of his speech released by his office. “So respectfully, I would suggest the President back off. Let the Court do its work.”
