"Roberts appears to have dived so far into the legal weeds that he completely lost sight of the purpose of the law. This shows the tremendous folly of a justice who is not schooled in health policy rewriting the law to save it. ........... it would have been far better for him to declare the law unconstitutional, as four of his brethren insisted, so Congress could get started with the sensible reform we need."

"Perhaps even worse, Roberts has created an entirely new taxing power for the federal government." Who would go to see this man?

I have it now. It was an Op./Ed. piece from Forbes Magazine dated July 12,2012 The title of the editorial was: Seeking to Preserve Obamacare, Chief Justice Roberts Eviscerated It. In my opinion it hit the nail on the head. He created a mess on both sides.

I am sure President Bush was disappointed in his decisions. I gave him credit for more backbone.

I agree carlaw and others. He was presented with a solid Constitutional argument against Obamacare, a 3,000 page bill that was passed by Congressmen and Senators, who never read the bill. Signed into law, by Obama, who never read the bill. And, adjudicated by the Supreme court, none of whom read the bill. This law was and is a travesty, and each one of these branches of government are responsible for changing America forever. (and, in a way no one is going to like).

Unintended consequences of this bill which Roberts' decision emboldened: unelected bureaucrats enacting 17,000+ pages of NEW regulations.

Just giving some facts. Orangeman, do you like the fact that our law makers don't even read the laws they enact? And then they exempt themselves from those very laws. A 3000 page bill is not even enforceable, let alone comprehensible. It is un-Constitutional, and Justice Roberts created a new tax, even changed the Obama side argument from a penalty to a tax. It sickens me to think of what our elite ruling class in doing to us, "We the People".

You'll never convince me that Roberts wasn't intimidated by verbal attacks from the Dems while deliberations were ongoing. What everyone should always remember and never forget is the fact that Elena Kagan worked for the White House while Obamacare was being written and with any sense of judicial integrity, she should have recused herself. In the meantime, I wouldn't walk across the street to listen to a word Roberts had to say.

Carlaw, you and others are what is so wrong about today's politics. Because you disagree with a decision he made, you show no respect whatsoever for the position itself. We are lucky to have a person of this position even consider visiting a town like Jamestown. And by the way, I am not republican. So stay away on Friday and leave room for people excited to see the head of the Supreme Court in the land.
