I didn't know about Knox vs SEIU (Service Employees International Union) when I wrote little bit of satire, yesterday. If anything proves that this Supreme Court is all about partizan politics - this decision is it. They broke their own rules to issue a ruling that, not for the first time, far surpassed the appeal they were supposed to be considering and, again not for the first time, thumbed their conservative noses at existing precedent.
Stare decisis and considered judicial reasoning aren't for Justice Roberts and his conservative cohorts.
At this point, I don't think there's a chance in hell of them figuring Obamacare is constitutional - despite being eminently so. I strongly believe the 5 conservatives are figuring just how far off remit they can go in ensuring that there is no possible chance of health care reform. I wouldn't be surprised if they went as far as putting Medicare and Medicaid on the block!
So much for the Supreme Court being an impartial referee. Justice Roberts and his conservative cabal are hell-bent on ensuring that the game is thrown their way.
