For tea baggers, facts and constitutionality won’t change a thing – that bubble is too darn thick! And some of them just aren’t that bright (many on Twitter now plan on moving to Canada because of “socialist Obamacare:).
Consider the reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act by tea party darling Rand Paul (R-Ky):
“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care right.”
Unfortunately, those “couple people” happen to be Supreme Court justices. You know, the ones who ultimately decide upon the constitutionality of the laws once enacted.
I guess Marbury v. Madison isn’t required reading for the tea party.
