- Obamacare sucks in every possible way.
- The ruling had a somewhat subtle, but firm slap in the face of Congress, declaring that their use of the Commerce Clause was incorrect and that the authority for the act rested under the Taxation Powers of Congress.
- In joining with the left, John Roberts may have just handed the November election to the GOP. Now the GOP has more to run on that “we’re not Obama”. They’ve got the economy and they’ve got Obamacare. It won’t be hard for them to point out that the costs of Obamacare will be borne by the taxpayers in the middle of a bad economy – a formula that got them a tremendous victory in the House last November. The more I think about it, this whole scenario has a very Karl-Rovesque feel to it, with someone playing a much smarter game than anyone’s realizing.
- The ruling makes Democrats happy today. I liken it to a team who just got a touchdown in a football game. They did, however, miss the extra point and now the other team (the GOP) has excellent field position. The only question is: can our Bringham-Young-graduate QB take it to the paint?
