Stunning is all that I can say about the decision on healthcare. What got into Judge Roberts? Could it be that he watched Letterman's top ten on the court? Could it be that he is looking at the polls and only 40% approve of the court and a majority have no faith in it at all? They say that Roberts doesn't want to see the court's decisions viewed as political and that is why he voted to uphold the ACA. If that is the reason, good. The reality is that since he took over as Chief Justice the majority of the decisions have been political and have overturned settled law (some of these laws a hundred years old). So it is a start but he has a long way to go.
