The legacy of John Roberts
Several days have passed since Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts shocked the political establishment by joining the liberals on the court to uphold the Affordable Care Act. His vote gave Obamacare a 5-4 survival. Justice Robert struck down the law under the Commerce Clause but upheld it as a tax.
While liberals were prepared to demonize the “racist” Supreme Court, conservatives have been for the most part muted and respectful at what seems like a tragic betrayal.
