Santorum Would Abolish Courts He Deems “Too Powerful”

Rick Santorum says the courts in America have become too powerful in general and would get rid of the ones he feels overstep.

Speaking to a crowd of 200 at a town hall at Merrimack Valley Railroad, Santorum said the courts needs to be reined in. “The third branch of government is in fact too powerful in the structure of government today with respect to checks and balances,” Santorum said. “They have become a super legislature. They have become in effect most powerful of the three (branches of government), and they should be the least.”

Some courts, he said, can be abolished. “What the Congress creates, it can uncreate,” Santorum said.

He vowed to appoint “originalist judges.”
