Quote of the Day, March 27, 2017

“When I put on the robe, I am also reminded that under our Constitution, it is for this body, the people’s representatives, to make new laws.  For the executive to ensure those laws are faithfully enforced.  And for neutral and independent judges to apply the law in the people’s disputes.  If judges were just secret legislators, declaring not what the law is but what they would like it to be, the very idea of a government by the people and for the people would be at risk.”
— Neil Gorsuch, opening statement to Senate Judiciary Committee, March 20, 2017
