Obamacare Survives, but Political Playing Field Has Changed

It's hard to believe that someone who is a life long Catholic supposedly would vote for a bill that encourages abortion and has death panels in it. Only a life long Democrat could do such a thing. John Roberts fooled a lot of people out there. But there is one figure in life he cannot fool and that is God. He may be a Supreme Court Justice but someday he will die just like the rest of us. I pray that when that happens God switches his vote and John Roberts spends his eternity in hell.

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
