We hired Roberts to do a job. He did not do it. What he did was activism from the bench. He and the other 4 justices spit in the face of all Americans.

This was the same guy who voted to uphold the 2nd amendment on a number of cases. It boggles the mind, this decision.

I think he became ‘belt-wayed’. The parties with the liberal washington in crowd. The brain washed spouse. And the promise of peace at home(whip cracking sound).

I hate DC

Very fine article, and not at all what I expected from the headline.

Jonah nails it.

It must have taken guts — it sure as hell didn’t take any brains.

Playing political games, especially because you’re trying to make nice with the Socialist-Liberals who hate you, in NOT the friggin’ job of a Justice of the Supreme Court. He was to rule on the Constitutionality of the Commerce Clause. But, he went a step farther and said: “Yeah; it Unconstitutional, but I’ll call it a Tax and let this p.o.s. stand.”
He has betrayed his office and this nation.

I’ve been listening to Bill Bennett’s show since 0500 this morning. He has had lots of good guests on. Nobody can explain why the traitor Roberts has done this. Nobody.

He rewrote the law for the administration and CONVERTED the mandate to a tax and it never was. IF he was being clever he has been too clever by half. I think he was bought or threatened. He had to contort his logic to “justify” this.

Will someone, can someone enumerate and value the taxes in this monstrosity, let alone the freedoms it destroys.

I think I just heard Paul Ryan say there are 28 taxes buried in this. It is massively flawed. Can’t the republicans communicate, in some simple terms, what this has in it to the people?

I already hear working class people interviewed who are saying that they can’t afford any new costs. None. No new insurance and no new taxes. They are tapped out.

“Some of Roberts’ defenders claim he's outmaneuvered everyone. By upholding ObamaCare, he's made future conservative decisions unassailable. He's poisoned the well of the commerce clause for liberals. He's removed the court as an election-year issue. He's gift-wrapped for Mitt Romney the attack that Obama has raised taxes massively, violating a host of promises and assurances. And, again, he's saved the legitimacy of the court.”

I prayed that it would be squashed yesterday, but I was not so naive to not consider the consequences if it had been so.

In reality though, all of the above is perfectly true.

Let zero talk his way out of the new mega TAX. Put the ball back in Congress’s court. It is true, Governments can TAX at will, but they do so at their own peril. This election has been gift wrapped for the GOP. Nothing More Nothing Less.

The Left even now are saying that this will all be forgotten by Nov. BS!!!!!!!!

Roberts, made it perfectly clear. WE THE PEOPLE still RULE!!

Let him try to tax us to fund abortions. The “Affordable Care Act” is going to die a slow painful death by a 1,000 cuts.

Over all there is now new rules to follow in from both Arizona and Obamacare. For the long haul it will define more clearly the basic bill creation. Laws cant mandate you to purchase unless you want to tax people. We need to change back congress to states getting their Senators. That alone will alter the Congress.

Eventually laws get reversed but from now on illegals and commerce will be changed forever.

The one thing folks forget is that zero has bribe files on everyone in power.

Remember the Build-a-burgers were in town right before this vote!

He's poisoned the well of the commerce clause for liberals.

I don't understand this line of reasoning.

Roberts' limitation on the Commerce Clause was set forth in part III-A of his opinion.

But NONE of the four liberals joined him as to part III-A of his opinion.

So Roberts did not convince any of the four liberals that the federal government's power is limited under the Commerce Clause.

The four conservatives (including Kennedy for this purpose) DID agree that ObamaCare was invalid under the Commerce Clause.

So it was 5-4 on the Commerce Clause.

And if Roberts had NOT upheld ObamaCare under the taxing power, it would still have been 5-4 on the Commerce Clause.

So I don't see how anyone can say that Roberts "poisoned the well of the Commerce Clause for liberals."

If Obama wins and appoints another liberal, then it will be 5-4 that the Commerce Clause does NOT limit government power.

And in that day, the fact that Roberts upheld ObamaCare won't make a bit of difference.

The liberal justices did not believe the Commerce Clause limited the power of government before Roberts' bizarre action, and they do not believe it afterward.

The idea that Roberts poisoned the well of the commerce clause by voting to uphold Obamacare is total BS. The 4 desenters said the same thing and had he of voted with them the result with regard to the commerce clause would have been the same. Instead he has opened a whole new can of worms regarding the government using taxation to force us to do something.

Goldberg writes an excellent article. Some deluded “conservatives” are trying to second-guess Roberts thinking he did this to preserve the integrity of the court. He was trying to prevent critics of the court of making the claim that the court was biased. So he was going to fair to the libs. What gibberish. The court is not there to take into consequence feelings or appearances of bias....it’s there to rule on law...period. Roberts screwed up.

"..Now, I don't know what's in Roberts' heart, but no court watcher I've heard from puts much weight on the idea that Roberts did anything other than reason backward from the result he wanted in order to buy respect from the court's critics at the expense of his own beliefs.."

If he did it once he will do it again. I am afraid we have Earl Warren II.

“...finding a way to save the reputation of the court...”

...from the libel and slander of the left had the ruling gone against Obamacare. (Progressive, pretentious, adolescent scu*bags.)

IMHO

Baloney. If he had real guts, he would have stood up to Obama and done the right thing. Instead, he cowtowed to pressure from the White House to uphold the law.

Not sure which anti-seizure drug he’s on but they all have mental impairment side effects. These can range from confusion and disorientation to thoughts of suicide. A rumor has it that his liberal law clerks write the opinions. Hmmmmm!
