Rep. Ryan: Roberts had to ‘contort logic and reason’ to reach ruling

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Sunday that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, in his tie-breaking vote on the Affordable Care Act this week, had to "contort logic and reason" to reach the conclusion that President Obama's healthcare law was constitutional.

In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Ryan said he was "very disappointed" in the ruling.

"I think the chief justice had to contort logic and reason to come up with this ruling," Ryan said. "So one man decided against the dissenting opinion, against what I... thought were his principles and judicial jurisprudence, he decided to leave this up to the American people. So, now the stakes of this election could not be higher."
