Chief Justice Roberts wrote that the decision offers no endorsement of the law’s wisdom, and that letting it survive reflects “a general reticence to invalidate the acts of the nation’s elected leaders.”
“It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices,” he wrote.
Justice Roberts is a gutsy genius.
A surprising bold move - excellent job.
Never saw it coming (neither did Romney).
Maybe the defunct American political system has a chance.
No it doesnt !
At least one Supreme Court Justice knows it is not their role to overturn major policy passed by the .gov
Romney et. al, can say "We'll repeal it anyway" .... but they must be devastated. It's just reason #100 the republicans are doomed in November.
