    I believe they would have loved to strike down section 5 as well, but settled on kneecapping voting with what they did today. Same as with the ACA.......Roberts probably would have loved to strike it down too, but didn't want the blowback so he figured out a way to make it harder to implement by giving states leeway to reject the Medicaid expansion.

      and Roberts is a sneaky son of a bitch.

        I've been thinking thoughts today that would eat through cast iron. If he thinks these contorted decisions get him where he wants to go but leaves his legacy untarnished, he's dead wrong. His court is blatantly anti minority, labor, middle class, and definitely anti "we the People", and history won't be kind.
