Transcript-Kirsten Powers

Kirsten, how do you answer Matthew?

KIRSTEN POWERS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, I mean, the Supreme Court obviously doesn't have an army to enforce decisions, but the president has to comply with decisions of the Supreme Court. And I am actually a surprising supporter of the Boehner lawsuit if he, in fact, does have standing because I think that the administration has clearly been shut down by the Supreme Court already on various decisions, and I think they have showed a somewhat hostility to certain things such as supporting the buffer zone that the Supreme Court just struck down in Massachusetts.

And if you listen to what Congressman Becerra was saying when he was answering your questions, he never once argued the law. He never once said, actually, these things are constitutional because X, Y, and Z. He kept saying, well, the people want this. Or this is a good thing and so, therefore, we should do it.

But that's not how it's done. It has to be constitutional. It has to comport with the law. And the fact they can't argue that is concerning.

Kirsten, who is a Democrat, says, “And if you listen to what Congressman Becerra was saying when he was answering your questions, he never once argued the law.

Becerra is a Democrat.
