"Those decisions are entrusted to our nation’s elected leaders"

    I just finished reading Roberts entire decision and in the end I think it was brilliant. He saved the court being labeled as partisan and put the decision on health care right back where it should be with this message:

    "Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation's elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."

    Simply put if you don't like the ACA then vote those who crafted it out of office. That is a right affirmed by the constitution and it can't be taken away.

    But of course you're voting for him anyway as you've reassured us many times.
