My daughter was in a small college seminar group with Roberts a few years ago. He said that his general philosophy is to leave decisions to the people in the decisions made by their elected representatives, since, in his opinion, it is much easier to change the Congress than it is to change the members of the Court. I guess this ruling was consistent with that. However, it is totally divorced from the reality of my entire life due to its ignoring of the heavy propagandizing involvement of our MSM. They are even now allowing the administration to get away with morphing the basis from taxing power back to a mandate, despite the explicit rejection of that. Opponents can’t let that happen. “Taxation by Misrepresentation” needs to be reinforced early and often , like “It’s the economy , stupid” was in 1992.
So why even have a Supreme Court, then, if it fails to enforce limited powers? Roberts just turned himself into a turnstile that never locks.
“Arbitrary and capricious” is how the appeals court described the Arizona law and Scotus agreed. This despite that law went through the committee process, had floor debates, etc.
OTOH, Obama was written in the dark of night by Marxists moles, without hearings, no floor debate, and not a single rank and file Congressman or Senator even knew what it contained.
So which law was arbitrary and capricious? A pox on Scotus and 'F all rats.
This Roberts is a communist , marxist, lying POS. He struck down Arizona’s state rights and a law that Arizon’s elected representatives passed but within a week twisted to rewrite a law that would enslave us and turn us into a socialist country.
