Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) spoke at the Federalist Society’s annual national lawyers convention. He talked about the Affordable Care Act, the presidential election and its outcome, and judicial nominations. He said the Supreme Court’s Affordable Care Act decision was not something judicial conservatives could accept or embrace. Senator Lee said Justice Roberts' decision was a “sharp aberration from the standard he had established early in his career.” He also talked about the possibility of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) attempting to change the Senate’s filibuster rules in the next Congress.

The former constitutional lawyer spoke before lawyers at an annual convention sponsored by the Federalist Society at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The theme for the 2012 convention was “The Future of U.S. Constitutional Law in the Supreme Court.” close
