% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Ironically, it was Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis who said, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.” And we have had too little light.

It’s a bit astonishing when someone of Clarence Thomas’s stature to be so ‘revoltionary.” In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act. (Orwell).

Justice Clarence Thomas: Washington, D.C. ‘is Broken’ and ‘We are Destroying our Institutions’

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas says Washington, D.C. is broken and that institutions are being destroyed, according to USA Today.

He also criticized the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, after recent news reports revealed health care premiums will increase more than 20 percent in 2017.

“This city is broken in some ways,” Thomas stated while celebrating his 25 years on the Supreme Court at the Heritage Foundation in an event Wednesday night. “At some point, we are going to have to recognize that we are destroying our institutions.”

Thomas suggested the Supreme Court is partly to blame for the deterioration. “What have we done to gain their confidence?” he questioned. “Perhaps we should ask ourselves what we have done to not earn it or to earn it.”

Referencing the Affordable Care Act, Thomas said the name of that law “seems like it’s kind of a misnomer, with all of the things that are going on.”
