Democrats Slam Scalia for Questioning Obamacare

Democrats are lashing out at conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for alleged bias during the Obamacare hearing, even though the court’s four liberal justices were generally seen as more effective in pushing for the law than the Obama administration’s own attorney.

Two comments Scalia made during the mammoth three-day hearing have been picked as showing he has allegedly already made up his mind and will vote to overturn the Affordable Care Act.

He used the term “Cornhusker Kickback” to refer to a $100 million Medicaid payment to Nebraska proposed to secure moderate Democrat Sen. Ben Nelson’s vote, and then said the justices could not be expected to read through all 2,700 pages of the law as they wrestle with its constitutionality.
