Romney’s response to the Supreme Court ruling. Key words: ”Obamacare was bad policy yesterday. It’s bad policy today.” He thinks this is a mandate to get Obama out of office.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace asked Issa whether he had “any evidence” that the White House had been involved with the matter.
"No, we don’t," Issa said.
The Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms apparently allowed some gun sales in Arizona to known Mexican criminals. Two of the guns involved were found at the scene of a firefight in which U.S. Customs Agent Brian Terry was killed.
In February 2011, DOJ sent a letter to Congress denying such sales, but retracted that claim in December. It is not clear if either Attorney General Eric Holder or President Barack Obama were aware of the program, and Issa acknowledged Sunday that he has not found evidence Holder was involved.
"I did not say that Eric Holder always knew," Issa said.
Issa previously suggested at a National Rifle Association conference that the Obama administration attempted to stir up controversy with Fast and Furious in an effort to push an assault rifle ban. This is despite the fact that the Bush administration, which opposed gun control, used similar programs.

“Well, we’ve had our brief moment of celebration, because the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is, in fact, unconstitutional. It’s what many of us argued all along,” Mourdock begins. “But don’t sit back and think the fight is over because it isn’t. Barack Obama and Congressman Joe Donnelly are already putting Obamacare 2.0 together and they’re going to try and pass it once again. We cannot let that happen.”
He continues: “The answer to America’s health care issues is not going to be big government to any reasonable solution. The answer is not going to come from having individuals lose their personal choice, lose their individual freedom. I’m Richard Mourdock and I’m running for the U.S. Senate to make sure that something like Obamacare does not happen again. If you’d like to help us wage that fight to make sure that Obamacare stays repealed, then please go to tour website, RichardMourdock.com, and contribute generously.”
This of course is awesome and hilarious because the Supreme Court has yet to rule on “Obamacare,” and are likely to do so next week. Well, at least we know what ol’ Rich is likely gonna say ahead of time.
