    amounts of $$$ to those evil jackals in the health insurance industry.  I can muster a shrug of gudging approval.  But I won't be cheering. We were lied to and we deserved better on health care reform.

      . .  but isn't there a good chance that that is exactly why this has happened? If the right wing of the SCOTUS could not find a way to strike down the entire law without looking like complete muppets, then to strike down the mandate but uphold the rest of the ACA is the Insurance industry's worst nightmare - all that regulation without the 30-40 million new customers . . . it's entirely possible that Roberts was just working at the nehest of his corporate sponsor.
