Whatever the case, our Harvard-educated chief justice -- undergrad and law school -- just made it the law of the land that as long as a president and House speaker and Senate leader lie long enough and in a bald-faced enough way to the entire nation about a society-changing piece of legislation, what they pass is just fine and dandy if we can eventually admit that it's a tax.
Actually, it's more of a stretch than that. Technically, not Obama or Reid or Pelosi has yet admitted that it's a tax. Roberts even did that for them -- and thus he found a perverted way to call it constitutional. He did it to himself.

Roberts just said: "Boy did these politicians sell you a bill of goods. Use the political process to do something about it, not the court"

Anyone who wants to pretend that this matter was not appropriate for the sc to strike down in whole is either a fool or a liar.

Roberts held the the door wide for any crazy notion that Congress can cook up, provided they can cover it in the General Welfare clause.

But that's always been so ...

It's up to the electorate to control congress.

Under this decision there is no law that can be found unconstitutional, provided that a majority of justices percieve said law as having implied a tax/penalty/fee/surcharge/suggested donation/tithe/offering/etc...

If by always you mean only after the mid-30s, then yes. As hard as it is to imagine there was a time when the SCOTUS did strike down government overreach.

It also means if the slugs win the tipping point over the producers, we're toast. .... :frown:
