    Roberts' opinion says a lot that conservatives will be glad he said the next time any President proposes a New Deal type piece of legislation.   Unlike Chief Justice Hughes, he was able to get the progressive judges to bite at language reducing the scope of the Commerce and General Welfare clauses in exchange for single piece of legislation.   Given that President Obama will likely only get to replace Justice Ginsburg, in kind, Roberts set up a post 2016 Supreme Court that may give conservatives a lot to crow about, assuming they take the White House in 2016.

      will serve their purposes in the future. Since it's not balanced with a Right, such as a right to healthcare, it's potentially onerous. It's just kicking the can down the road. My celebration is muted because of it.

      for a very long time. Never in 2016. It's going to be Democrats for many years.

      We have to struggle to make this happen. Or, you think this was a recession? They'll destroy us totally!

      Even in NJ, no Democrat dreamed this scheme up!

          After 2010, gop just continued to show everyone how much more they could screw up this country. By now it should be obvious.
