The one certainty for members of the Republican party is they believe in the concept of ending rule by “activist judges” and want all judges to adhere to the intent of our Founding Fathers. As we all know, Madison and Hamilton fervently believed that corporations were like people endowed with the right of freedom of speech. Supreme Court Justice Roberts decided the commerce clause of the US Constitution allowed requiring payment for medical insurance.
In other words, Roberts believed the Original Intent of our Founding Fathers was that Congress had the right to regulate interstate commerce. We already require Americans to pay the tax for medical insurance, most states FORCE people to purchase automobile insurance, there are laws requiring wearing of seat belts, so what exactly is the issue for payment of health insurance?
The greatest shock is that a conservative judge actually behaved in a conservative manner.
