Bush had Medicare Part D, Roberts has Robertscare (a more fitting name).
For what it’s worth, the bilderburgers had their usual meeting a few weeks ago. Wonder if he got offered something hh couldn’t refuse? Or is it legacy building? The leftards will love him now, till his use fullness runs out anyway.
He changed his vote after the Sandusky conviction scared him.
Is Justice Roberts allowed to do this?
And what happens if he comes out later and says he was coerced?
I have long said that we are in the midst of a marxist takeover.
Chief Justice Roberts woke up with a dead horse in his bed.
What does Rush know about Roberts -- 'I know but I can't say' re: Roberts with the Left on the Arizona decision, and foreshadowing this decision as well 'the next one could go this way' -- but won't tell?
At first I was disappointed - I think Roberts might might have been very wise....
If Romney can’t win now we are totally screwed as a nation ruled by the constitution.
Roberts basically said - you all voted for this by allowing Obama to get elected.... now you all fix it.
Risky - but smart.
Tired of Roberts being defended. There was no real threat of invalidating the court. Roberts did that single handedly today. He proved that the court was nothing but an activist nightmare and he needs to be replaced or the court is nothing but destructive.
The Chicago gangbangers may have made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. Chicago politics do get ugly.
Ginsberg said that those who know, don’t talk and those who talk, don’t know. We should have seen this coming.
If the 30-something folks are paying attention, ObamaCareTax will be more expensive than “free” contraceptives ... Where is Ms Fluke?
I believe he did a last minute Hamlet, torn between what he knew to be legally correct and what he thought he needed to do to save the Court from leftist mau-mauing. In the end, he chose wrongly.
There a lot more to this story than what we know today. Read this first sentence carefully>
&&Roberts was feeling tremendous pressure from unidentified circles to vote to uphold the mandate. Did Roberts originally vote to invalidate the mandate on commerce clause grounds, and to invalidate the Medicaid expansion, and then decide later to accept the tax argument and essentially rewrite the Medicaid expansion (which, as I noted, citing Jonathan Cohn, was the sleeper issue in this case) to preserve it? If so, was he responding to the heat from President Obama and others, preemptively threatening to delegitimize the Court if it invalidated the ACA? The dissent, along with the surprising way that Roberts chose to uphold both the mandate and the Medicaid expansion, will inevitably feed the rumor mill.
With Roberts now, my gut is telling me that it’s either a live boy(s) or a dead girl or a woman who made sure she (and/or her confederates) obtained & kept irrefutable proof of an illicit affair. And if not any of these it is some kind of financial or legal impropriety with which he is being threatened/controlled.
Roberts is just another on a long list of court nominees who have betrayed the conservative cause once they got in office. George Bush thought that he would be a reliable conservative. So did I and I supported his nomination. We were both wrong.
If it’s true that his epilepsy medication is clouding his judgement then he needs to resign once Romney takes office.
