A Very Hollow Victory
Chief Justice John Roberts gave his approval to the ACA. Don’t fool yourself – it may look like a victory for the Democrats and Obama but it’s a very hollow one at best.
For starters Roberts gutted the Commerce Clause. It will be far more dificult to use it for social engineering in the future.
The worse part though is it just became much less likely that the Democrats will be able to take back the House and hold the Senate. In addition Romney’s chances just got a whole lot brighter.
