Actually, you don't understand the logic of Roberts' ruling. This was no expansion of the power to tax; this was an explanation of the "mandate" as a tax hike, but which includes a tax break for people with insurance. Congress influences behavior using tax incentives all the time; we have breaks for the number of children, what kind of car you drive, the mortgage on your house, charitable donations, etc. Roberts saw the "mandate" as statutorily a tax break for people with insurance.
