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.

I know it isn't the popular view at this moment, but I'm starting to think that, in fact, Roberts really snookered the libs into voting for HIS interpretation, which was not the smack-down but was probably much more damaging to liberalism over the long haul. The severe limitation of the commerce clause and the striking down of the Medicare imposition on states ripped the real guts out of Obamacare, while upholding the tax puts it back in the hands of Congress (where it should be) and allows us with reconciliation to eliminate it. Obviously, Obama will veto, and obviously, then, nothing will be funded.
If I understand the structure right, without the Medicare taxes on the states, and without taxes passed by the House, this thing is dead as Ronnie James Dio.
