Obamacare is now essentially upheld. Theres only one way it can be overturned. The same way it was passed elect a new president and a new Congress. Thats undoubtedly what Roberts is telling the nation: Your job, not mine. I wont make it easy for you.

Then why did Roberts re-write the legislation in the first place?
My head is going to explode thank goodness I have free health care now. All hail Obama
4 dissenting justices knew this was judicial activism. An appeals court knew this was judicial activism. We know this is judicial activism. Hell, even the 4 dissenting libs knew this was judicial activism.
Roberts knew the law, none better. He knew this was a commerce clause case, he even said it was, but he amended the law to make it a tax case.
The only ones who don't know that this is judicial activism are the Krauthammers and others who are defending this despicable ruling.
He has 2 minor children adopted from Central America. The Democrats were researching and questioning their adoption records even when he was up for confirmation. It wouldn’t be a stretch to consider that the Democrats did something or said something to threaten his family.
His switch from “unconstitutional” to “constitutional” at the last minute also suggests he was forced, coerced or just bribed.
I wouldn’t be surprised it if comes out he was threatened, his kids might be deported as illegally adopted, say they were bought from a baby broker, or something like that, in order to force him to change his vote.
List o the senate seat that are contested can be found at WIKIpedia. Good chart. We need to get to work.
Changing his vote alienated the conservatives on the Court, screwing the pooch on protecting his inner Rodney King.
Not upholding the Constitution (what happened to the lack of a severability clause in the legislation) and actively rewriting law from the bench shot his legitimacy and legacy with conservative Americans for years to come.
And Roberts is A D A. He opened a door for congress to pass outlandish laws if they have a tax applied!!!
Well, yes, and no...
“Nope, Roberts nullified the Constitution with this ruling. It will take 2 more Conservatives on the Court to isolate this bastard.”
Right in context but have to think that getting folks that actually read the Constitution on the Court or getting Judges that not only understand the Constitution but rule as such would be a great advance! A very great feat it seems these day... Not sure that we can find the great minds of Scalia or Thomas. Of course the liberals continue to label their opinions as Conservative instead of looking at the ruling.
Until we git rid of the elective “be subservient to the Liberal establishment” we can NOT achieve freedom.
Sometimes I think we are doomed anyway!
well put explanation.
On October 3, President Bush nominated Harriet Miers to replace O'Connor. However, Miers withdrew her acceptance of the nomination on October 27 after encountering widespread opposition."
Great, another reason to hate Bush. Well, actually, I’m beginning to think that much is deserved! A Republican, progressive Republican, is worse that any other Republican.
Its not Roberts job to anoint winners and losers based on his thought process. He is to rule over constitutionality. He is epic fail. Some could argue his behavior was treasonous.
“Which moron, Roberts or Obama?”other
Brother of another color.
If Obamacare had been repealed the economy would have responded in a very positive way. Don’t you think the White House would have take all the credit?! How many voters would realize that the resulting resurgence was IN SPITE of the administration.
I would have certainly preferred that it had been repealed, but you look for whatever bright side you can.
If the GOP can retake the Senate and repeal this monstrosity, then we come out of it with a fully repudiated Democratic Party and a Commerce Clause that has been reigned in by the Supreme Court.
We really have to get together and fight this in public opinion! Roberts made a pubic opinion regarding a very political statement! This has transformed the Supreme Court into a Constitutional court into a political court!
We the people still have the final say! It may not be apparent yet, but we do have the power to change not only this ruling but several others of the unconstitutional courts.
While I am livid with this decision, I am open to rebellion.
And by the way, the bill passed both houses of congress without a single Republican vote - it was not a bipartisan effort.......
If the system is “whatever gets elected is constitutional”, then where is the checks and balance?
Especially with nowadays - what gets elected is based on lies.
That is my suspicion too...
I would not be surprised, given how the thug Obama and his minions act.
