Schumer echos Biden: Supreme Court is supposed to make law

I posted a quote by Joe Biden where he had a Freudian slip and said that the USSC is supposed to "make new law" instead of what most normal human beings know, which is that the USSC is supposed to interpret law. Well, it seems Chucky Schumer has made the same Freudian slip. Then again, who says it's Freudian? He may be openly admitting what most liberals believe: get an unaccountable court to implement policies that most Americans wholeheartedly reject and thus can never make it into legislation.

Chucky's quote:
I hope Judge Roberts, understanding how important this nomination is, particularly when replacing a swing vote on the court will decide to answer questions about his views. Now that he is nominated for a position where he can overturn precedent and make law, it's even more important that he fully answers a broad range of questions. I hope, for the sake of the country, that Judge Roberts understands this and opens questions -- sorry, and answers questions openly, honestly and thoroughly.
Emphasis mine. Chuckster, he's not being nominated for any such position. He's being nominated to be a Supreme Court justice.
