There’s been a bit of an argument here between the lay people who typically thought the SCOTUS ruling would go 5-4 against ACA and the lawyers who thought it would go 6-3 or 7-2 in favor. Can we at least agree on this: that the level of partisanship the right is displaying is
stung striking here, both from judges like Scalia who literally changed his mind about principle in order too oppose it, and from conservative activists who now brand Roberts a traitor.
The bill was based on a plan drawn up by the Heritage Foundation. And then 80% of conservative justices branded it unconstitutional.
If a Republican Congress had the bill, and a Republican president had signed it, how would the vote have gone, in your opinion? I’d especially like to hear from the lawyers.
