this pix has floated around here ever since the SCOTUS(Roberts) decided that Obamacare was simply a tax.....obviously he was gotten to.
be it gay, his kids adoption, whatever...he was gotten to. he was, seemingly, one of the most conservative justices. Scalia was absolutely gobsmacked by the change in Roberts. So I do not know what this picture means, one way or the other it means that Roberts is now playing for the other team, one way, or the other.
It certainly would be interesting to know who the other two in the photo are.
However you are correct in believing that regardless of the significance of the picture, something is really rotten.
Either he has been blackmailed or he has been a sleeper, mole or whatever. In any case, he blew it.
However, he is not the only one. In declaring it a tax law, he gave the house a really good opening to either end it or to cut the guts out of it to the point it would have been nothing more than a sign on the front, maybe even the back door, of some nondescript building in DC.
But boner and McConnell have not the spine to use what was handed to them on a sliver platter.
