Chief Justice Roberts splits the baby on ObamaCare
Chief Justice says Congress doesn't have authority to mandate health care purchase under Commerce clause, so we'll just call it a tax.
The infinite expansion of the Commerce clause we feared didn't happen, and ObamaCare can be undone by a new Congress. But now Congress can apparently take away any right you have by just imposing a "tax."
How about a $100,000 tax for free speech?
UPDATE: Glass-half-full view from SCOTUSblog:
Lyle: The rejection of the Commerce Clause and Nec. and Proper Clause should be understood as a major blow to Congress's authority to pass social welfare laws. Using the tax code -- especially in the current political environment -- to promote social welfare is going to be a very chancy proposition.
