I have no answer to that question. However, Roberts did do a good thing, believe it or not. By ruling Obamacare a tax, it became the responsibility of Congress to implement, or not. Roberts made it impossible for the socialists to keep using the courts to push their agenda on social issues. If he had ruled it unconstitutional, the have healthcare advocates would have just kept trying until they got their way with a friendly Supreme Court.

Now it’s a matter of winning Congress, so it can be overturned.

Winning the congress with a large enough majority to override a presidential veto.

With enough seantors that have not been bought or blackmailed to avoid a filibuster and the 2/3 majority in both houses to over-ride the veto.

The GOP won Congress. So far they have done nothing to reduce the "tax" to zero, and show no inclination to do so. Know why? Because ultimately they GOP believes in fascism lite just as much as the dems. The idea of indenturing the serfs to private entities gives them wood. If you are a U.S. Citizen you now belong to a health insurance plantation.

Please, stop the crap. Roberts did not do a "good thing."

Do you see Congress lifting an effeminate finger to stop a damned thing this communist-coup administration is doing? Do you see even the remotest of chances that "we" can defeat their massive election fraud machine to retake Congress? Please don't shill for Roberts.

There is near-zero chance it will be repealed. The Congress is for it. They have no choice, as it is being implemented more and more each day. We are stuck with it.

How is voting along with Sotomayor, Kagan and Ginsburg a “good thing”?

UR insane.

Roberts said ANY AND EVERYTHING can be taxed !

Congress repeal it !? They`ll go forward with anything they wish now ! Refuse to eat broccoli ? Special tax. Refuse to use solar energy? Special tax. Refuse to drive electric car? Special tax.

Roberts made sure there was not one single impediment to what the Federal Govt. can tax you for doing and especially, NOT DOING !

Seriously, u need help.

What Tax has EVER been overturned?

Once in place, it takes Super Majorities to get through BOTH the House and the Senate, and a Signature from the POTUS.....NEVER going to happen in your lifetime, with the One Party System that we now have.

There is the fantasy Congress, and then there's the real Congress. The latter closely matches the description of the second beast in Revelation, the one with two horns that makes the laws demanding prostration to the first beast.

What else to expect from a lawless regime?

Chief Justice Roberts gave power to Obama and Congress, kind of like the dragon in Revelation 13.
