Mark Steyn has put the recent Supreme Court ruling on O’care in perspective:
… Chief Justice John Roberts had written both the majority opinion in the Obamacare decision and the dissent. He is literally his own worst enemy.
He’s apparently the Mike Myers of the Supreme Court, able to play both Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, although it has to be said that he seems rather more at home as the bumbling swinger.
If I understand correctly, the chief justice wrote the dissent back when it was the 5–4 majority opinion, and then, after switching sides, wrote the new majority opinion,
Well, digest that first… and then go on:
… and the four guys left holding the old majority opinion decided to leave it as is, presumably as a way of not so subtly underlining their total contempt for their squishy chief.
Fascinating stuff, I’m sure. An enterprising legal scholar should pitch it to Paramount as a high-school musical….

Yeah, the recent decision seems to have the greatest effect of allowing John Roberts to say that the Supreme Court did NOT overturn any legislation.
That’s despite the inescapable fact that it would have NEVER passed under the premise Roberts used to judge it constitutional, thereby allowing it to pass & be signed into law – through FRAUD.
But the Bo Dizzle is good at getting what he wants through fraud….!
