Reagan Solicitor General “Appalled” That Supreme Court Repeats Tea Party Arguments
Charles Fried is “appalled” that conservatives on the Supreme Court are repeating “tendentious” Tea Party arguments about health care reform.
Reagan Solicitor General Charles Fried was scaldingly critical of the willingness of the conservative bloc of Supreme Court justices to traffic in some of the most well-worn Tea Party tropes about Obamacare.
“I was appalled to see that at least a couple of them were repeating the most tendentious of the Tea Party type arguments,” Fried said. “I even heard about broccoli. The whole broccoli argument is beneath contempt. To hear it come from the bench was depressing.”
