Justice Breyer: I’ll go to State of the Union

Vince Coglianese Contributor

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said Sunday that he will attend the upcoming State of the Union address, even as more conservative justices have been critical of what happened at the last one.

Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito have complained that President Obama, in last year’s address, criticized the court on o ne of its decisions, even as the justices are expected to sit there expressionless.

Alito, at one point, mouthed the words “not true” when Obama criticized the court for “opening the floodgates” to corporate money in elections through its decision in the Citizens United case.

“I’ll go next year; I’ve gone every year,” Breyer said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think it’s very, very, very important – very important — for us to show up at that State of the Union, because people today are more and more visual.”
