Day in court tomorrow -- the Supreme Court will decide the constitutionality.
-- Affordable Care Act if it's not ruled.
Unconstitutional the GOP says they will try and repeal it but can that that's a big question -- candidate you.
You're joining us -- to weigh in on this is Florida congressman Alan west represented west nice to see this morning welcome back to show.
Good morning good to be with the Allison played in the day.
Great to have you -- tomorrow of course all eyes on Supreme Court the first thing out of the -- the Obama administration gonna try to put a halt any actually sort of legal proceedings basically saying.
This thing is even it out of the gate yet so you guys can't roll on it what do you think's gonna happen tomorrow.
Well I think that shows undue influence coming from the executive branch and I think once again you say an Obama administration that does not understand we have coequal branches of government in the legislative branch and also the judicial branch and for them to try to influence any decision the Supreme Court once again shows that they have no real concern about the father -- and how they establish our government.
Do you think of the way that the Supreme Court could rule -- ten and of the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional but keeps -- play.
Well I think at heart of the matter Allison is when you look at the individual mandate the individual mandate really they're tried to go to the commerce clause of the constitution.
But at this -- cross reference saying -- some study to include Edwin -- is guide to the US constitution.
And the work commerce says it was written and understood back there and really talked about trade practices so the commerce clause talks about regulating trade practices and fair trade practices.
Between the federal government -- congress and other states.
Other nations and -- the Indian tribes if we were to believe that the United States federal government now has a right to mandate the private American individual citizens to buy certain type of private sector commodity.
Or be -- because of it that goes against everything that Thomas Jefferson believed back when he wrote the declaration of independence that talked about the inalienable rights to come from -- our creator which is life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Of course John Locke reason we call that property.
-- -- by George will this morning about this going against bad decades and decades of contract law as well the United States but I want to ask you about.
If this is ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court is there any chance that the GOP can as the candidates are promising repeal it.
Short of having the senate the house and the White House.
Well I think.
You ask the very interest in question because really the Obama administration and truly be a liberal disciples -- in an untenable position.
Because even the Supreme Court does -- they should do without a doubt -- think he should be unanimous decision to say that the independent payment advisory board the individual mandate and not just.
On constitution they really are anti constitutional because they -- the government to probably our most personal decision that's about a light but the thing -- says if the the Supreme Court does prove to be constitutional.
Then you'll see the American people Raza and understand that this is truly a threat.
To what the United States Americas is as a constitutional republic.
And you probably will see change in the presidency is senate and the maintaining of the house on there -- the GOP so that we can repeal this as well some other very onerous.
Legislation that was passed.
-- the -- well that all starts of course tomorrow so Fox News will be covering it from -- wall to wall your coverage of what happens we be Affordable Care Act but also on Friday the president was out there and Oklahoma talking about the southern portion of the Keystone Pipeline.
Saying he's gonna cut through red tape and get this process going of course still at issue is the northern portion of the Keystone Pipeline that critics say the president.
Has blocked this at every turn -- -- president wrong for getting credit for this now.
Well that you know leaders take responsibility -- not credit.
And I think that when you look at this whole thing about these southern portion it would be very much the same as if I went home right now to wash my car and I cut the water -- in half an asset that house still -- watch -- call with the the lower part of the -- host without being able to turn on this -- so this is absolutely insidious what the president is talking about.
-- Well colonel Allen west --
