Anger at Roberts turns into wonder
Today some pundits worry that Roberts has given Congress unlimited power through taxation. (Isn’t that where taxation and spending is supposed to start?). My son Brian, who is a "SCOTUS-phile" explained the layering of internal decisions that led to the ruling. He said, "Roberts teed up the ball for Romney and gave him a Big Bertha to drive it to the 19th hole." Swinging power back to Congress, away from a dictatorial WH full of communists, terrorists, Muslim Brotherhood and eugenicists seems a good thing at this time when the Republicans are poised to take the WH, Senate and are assured continued control of the House.
Tea Partiers who have seemed to disappear are rejuvenated. I don't think the Republicans have sense enough to exploit their patriotism and love of country that can even pull in the Hispanic vote (“Viva Cristo Rey!”). Stranger things have happened.
We've got a lemon - now let's make lemonade and sell it on every street corner in the USA, without a permit from some addled bureaucrat.
