Could this mornings big decision be the biggest let-down since Geraldo Rivera broke into Al Capones vault on national TV? The man who vetted John Roberts for the nomination to the Supreme Court told CNN yesterday that he expects the Chief Justice to decide the case on the most narrow grounds possible, which means Roberts may well urge the court to punt on ObamaCare for now
and put us all through this again in a few years after the mandate has taken effect:
Roberts reading decision right now. Individual Mandate is Unconstitutional. Roberts wrote the opinion.
Characterizing individual mandate as a TAX, so it stands (even though it is deemed unconstitutional.)
The Affordable Healthcare Act is Constitutional with the small exception that the Govt. cannot take money away from the States (Medicaid)if the Feds don’t like the way it is spent. Roberts’ vote “saved” the healthcare Act. Kennedy voted with the Conservatives. Roberts is the Judas.
He just did.
Gonzales - Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
From the Urban Dictionary:
Someone who is ill-informed and liable to be taken advantage of. A sucker who lacks inside knowlege or savvy.
Based on the decision just renderred, the punt just turned into a fake kick.
Roberts runs 100 yards from his own goal line and scores a TD for the Dick Obama team.
Coach Dick Obama, decides to make an executive order and increase the number of point from 6 to 60 whenever his team scores a TD.
Roberts agrees that that is his privilege under the commerce clause.
