Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sought to assuage liberal fears Sunday, arguing that tough questioning from the Justices does not mean the Supreme Court will overturn the Affordable Care Act.
“You know, I’ve been on the Judiciary Committee for 30 years in the House and the Senate, and one thing I’ve learned, you can’t tell by the questioning as to how the court is going to rule,” he said on NBC’s Meet The Press.
Schumer pointed to other cases where tough questioning belied the outcome.
“I would say this,” he added later. “Anyone who judges how the court is going to rule based on the questions hasn’t looked at the history of the questions before and then the results.”
