General Off-Topic Board / Re: Obamacare upheld
« on: July 04, 2012, 04:31:33 PM »
What I want to know is why is Roberts' opinion the one that matters most?  Wasn't there two majority opinions upholding it for different reasons?

I also imagine that this could potentially limit the power of the commerce clause.  Anyone have thoughts on that?

And something tells me that Roberts did this in hopes to stay out of partisan politics but still give the GOP a way to get rid of Obamacare through reconciliation in the Senate (if the right is able to win the senate).  Wouldn't they need Romney to win the presidential election as well in order to not have Obama veto the Senates decision?
