Krauthammer: 'Leave the decision of affirmative action up to the people'

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Tuesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that Tuesday's Supreme Court opinion that effectively ends affirmative action at public universities in Michigan was a sound decision.

"The left is trying to institutionalize affirmative action to make it impossible for any legislature or any referendum ever to abolish it ever in the history of the country," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said. "An outrageous proposition that was rejected by the court."

Krauthammer said the issue should be decided on a state-by-state basis.

"What happened today on affirmative action ... will allow now a stable settlement as the country, very complex and diverse, works it out state by state, exactly as you want to do it in a democracy," Krauthammer added.
