Too bad, but at least we’ll be spared all that drivel from the left about the “politicized” Supreme Court – they’re back to being reasoned, principled jurists. Until the next case.
UPDATE: Upholding it on Congress’s power to tax, rather than the Commerce Clause. That might be significant for the next massive extension of federal power but I think not: the power to tax is the power to destroy and all other protections fall under this sledge hammer.
The irony of this ruling is that the government spent most of its time in oral argument denying that it was a tax yet that’s what saved their bacon.
