Dred Scott decision said slavery was the law of the land.  Does any Democrat think they were right?

Democrat’s agreement that ObamaCare is “the law of the land” is extremely weak given the fact that so was slavery.

Dred Scott

Dred Scott

Dread Scott in 1857 was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court held that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court,[2][3] and that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the federal territories acquired after the creation of the United States.Read more here.

So the Supreme Court said slavery was legal.But, millions of Americans rightly thought that slavery was wrong.Unfortunately, five years later the nation endured a civil war to settle the issue.

My point is simple.Just because ObamaCare is the law of the land doesn’t make it a good and just law.Many of Americans are being legitimately hurt by it by either losing their health coverage they were satisfied with, employees are being reduced to part time workers, and the quality of care is subpar compared to what Americans deserve.

These are legitimate grievances caused by an illegitimate law passed in secret in the dark of night.And even if the Supreme Court found ObamaCare constitutional, I challenge any Democrat in this country to defend the Dred Scott decision.I bet nobody would.Get the drift?: : :
