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.

SORRY! This is NOT the job of the Supreme Court! They are suppose to rule on Constitutionality, not anything else!
That means that Roberts did NOT do his duty. Not only that but he disregarded his duty to the Constitution.
Anything else is just an excuse for his vote.
Yes, I am getting madder by the day!!
Yep, that’s about it. We need to work hard between now and November!
“Thats undoubtedly what Roberts is telling the nation: Your job, not mine. I wont make it easy for you.”
Time to impeach the moron.
We can stop the ObamaCareTax with whats in pave now.
All Roberts and the Supreme Court had to do was either find the law Constitutional or unconstitutional. Period. What he did amounts to psycobable.
WHAT YOU SAID!! And, I'm also getting more and more pissed off with each passing day.
Yea me too.
It’s settling in very bitter.
Which moron, Roberts or Obama?(At this point, either one is OK by me)
Does that mean the fact Thief Justice roberts is a duplicitous jackass who actively refused to do his job had nothing to do with it?
Exactly. Roberts screwed the pooch, AND, the American people. He can regain integrity by admitting he did wrong, and resigning. Obama won’t have time to replace him before he is thrown out on his commie arse.
Why did he do it? Because he carries two identities. Jurisprudentially, he is a constitutional conservative. Institutionally, he is chief justice and sees himself as uniquely entrusted with the custodianship of the courts legitimacy, reputation and stature.Really? Because by ignoring his own understanding of the illegitimacy of the law, he has damaged the stature of the Supreme Court immeasurably and irredeemably. It makes no sense at all.
Krauthammer himself says he'd have ruled differently.
There is nothing positive about the Roberts ruling, including his motives - whatever they may have been. Achieving a bad result by doing the wrong thing - deliberately - is wrong.
You don't have to be a lawyer or a judge to understand that. John Roberts is either a very bad justice or a very bad man, or both.
It appears as though Roberts may have a large cult following. According to the Yahoo front page, Roberts’ ruling has made ObamaCare very popular with “Republicans and independents”.
That Miers nomination is looking better and better all the time.
Nope, Roberts nullified the Constitution with this ruling. It will take 2 more Conservatives on the Court to isolate this bastard. No Conservative issue is ever going to get fair hearing as long as the lefty gang of five is there. They will make every lefty crackpot law and lawsuit legal and dismiss a Conservative law and lawsuit as political. This ruling FUBAR any fair hearings in the future.
I guess the “republicans and independents” they talked to were relieved to learn it was just a tax and not a penalty.
