Shrinking Cornyn

More Alito shrinkage

Using MS Word to summarize John Cornyn's (R-TX) opening statement:
Judge Alito, welcome to the committee, and to your family as well. You served as United States attorney. As you know, law clerks are those who advise appellate judges on the cases they hear. Rather, they want judges who will impose their liberal agenda on the American people; views so liberal that they cannot prevail at the ballot box. I want judges on the Supreme Court who will not use that position to impose their personal policy preferences or political agenda on the American people.

I want judges on the Supreme Court who will respect the words and the meaning of the Constitution, the laws enacted by Congress and the laws enacted by state legislatures. The Supreme Court held by a vote of 6-3 that this was unconstitutional.
