President Rick Santorum Would Eliminate The “Rogue” 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals

Speaking to the Myrtle Beach, SC Tea Party, possible 2012 Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said he “would sign a bill tomorrow to eliminate the 9th Circuit [Court of Appeals]. That court is rogue. It’s a pox on the western part of our country.” (via TPM) Santorum believes courts are not an equal branch of government and have too much power.

Santorum said he believes in a strict reading of the Constitution and that the federal government has “overstepped its bounds.”

He also said he believes the courts have too much power.

“The courts were supposed to be the most insignificant branch of the government,” he said. Congress has the power and the right to declare what is constitutional or not, he said, and added that since Congress created all of the courts, other than the Supreme Court, it has the power to disband them.

“I would sign a bill tomorrow to eliminate the 9th Circuit [Court of Appeals]. That court is rogue. It’s a pox on the western part of our country,” Santorum said.
