    It isn't a court, it may hear evidence but it then disregards the proceedings, goes where it hasn't been sent, ignores precedent and invariably comes up with the corporate friendly decision.  In a way it makes me feel a bit more optimistic about the ACA because the mandate is very friendly to the health insurance industry and ironically it would not necessarily be corporate friendly to find the mandate unconstitutional.
    Regardless, the Roberts court is laughable except they're not funny; they are the biggest threat to our democracy in existence, bar none.

      With rare exceptions appellate courts don't here evidence. It is at the trial court level that evidence is heard by the judge or jury as the triers of fact. The appellate courts, including the SCOTUS, deal only with matters of law.
