Did not happen today as Chief Justice Roberts was not prepared to turn the court into a partisan weapon by sabotaging health insurance reform.
While all the smart people were writing that the court should uphold the law and decades of established precedent, but will overturn the law anyway, something told me that this was a bridge too far. Acting so brazen would give mean people more than ample opportunity to label John Roberts a 21st century Roger Taney. Who wants to be compared to the guy who wrote the partisan hackery that was the Dred Scot decision? Not Roberts, that's who.
But maybe I just got lucky.
