Response to Pirate Smile (Reply #3)

27. Sort of a political hit on Roberts. This is shameful in my opinion.

It's like sending a message to the right-wing: Don't hire Roberts for speeches. Put him on hold. Don't return his calls.

Roberts knew that the law is constitutional under the tax and spend section of Article I, section 8 and that if it didn't pass as a tax now, it would in the future.

So overturning it would have put the country through a lot of turmoil and made the Court look foolish. Because in the end we will have universal health care. It's the human thing to do. It's the right thing to do. No one should die of a curable disease because they can't afford to see a doctor.
