The Holder Letter

I previously blogged on a Federal Judge (Fifth Circuit) asking the Department of Justice to comment on the question of judicial review, given the comments by the President on Judicial Review.  Here is the Presidential quote that launched the letter from the Attorney General.
Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.
The Affordable Health Care was passed by a strong majority?  How soon they forget.

We now have the letter from our Attorney General, Eric H Holder, Jr, dated 5 April 2012, laying out the position of the Department of Justice.  It is a good, solid letter, right up to the last paragraph, which is the last sentence.
The President’s remarks were fully consistent with the principles described herein.
I guess he had to say that, didn't he?

For another view, we have David Bernstein commenting, and at this posting 179 comments on the post.  A good Passover to you, David Bernstein.
