John Roberts - The latest in a long series of disappointing Republican appointments to SCOTUS.

Roberts cast a vote with the majority, which preserved part of the law. Had he gone against it, the vote would've been deadlocked at 4-4 (Kagan recused), defaulting back to the 9th Circuit Court, which issued a stay on the immigration status check. Roberts' vote preserved at least something out of it.

The one that concerns me is... as usual... Anthony Kennedy. After all the showmanship during the argument phase, I have a nagging fear he's going to swing with the liberal side on the Obamacare case.

Thursday's ruling will be a hugely pivotal moment for the future of this country. I'm not optimistic the ruling will come down in favor of freedom. If Obamacare is upheld, we're screwed unless Obama somehow loses in November.
