20. It was ROBERTS and KENNEDY doing a tandem stranglehold on both sides of the decision writing

My own take is that he and KENNEDY made a deal:

That ROBERTS would take the heat off of KENNEDY as the #5 vote,

that KENNEDY would write a dissent that went ALL THE WAY further saying the WHOLE law was unconstitutional, and

that ROBERTS could take the main message away from the 4 Libs by writing the main decision with his own spin on top of the Libsí versions.


That way, KENNEDY and ROBERTS, both of them together, had control over both sides of the written decisions.
