You didn't really believe the Supreme Court would rule the entire Healthcare Act unconstitutional, did you? Talk about throwing the country into chaos!
Justice Roberts is taking a lot of undeserved heat from Republicans. Apparently, he is one of very few Republicans who has the ability to see beyond the end of his nose, beyond his party's ironclad ideology and the courage to stand up for what is right for the American People.
Politicians from both parties are always prone to hyperbole, but the Republicans are outdoing themselves this time. They can't seem to exaggerate enough in their outrage at what they call "Obamacare" and now, they are concentrating all their vitriol on a Supreme Court Justice, who must be thinking , "Wow. They really DO eat their young, don't they? Wonder what they'll do the next time I get another crack at Citizens United? Maybe I'll see how many more heads will explode if I rule the way I should have in the first place, and vote to overturn that?"
And, honestly, if you were Mitt Romney, would you go around saying if you win the election, you will repeal Obomneycare, er I mean Obamacare, on day one. In the first place, he won't have the power to unilaterally repeal anything, much as he might want to be crowned King of America. And, after the Republicans in the House get through making asses of themselves, trying to repeal the law, only to have it defeated by the Senate, before the election, who knows what will happen after that?
It's going to be a long, hot summer.
