I hate that Obamacare is still standing. But I'm also a little befuddled by some of the criticism of the decision. While the debate raged, before passage of this monstrosity, we argued long and hard that this was a devilish and devious tax increase. Unfortunately, because we had been asleep at the wheel for too long, Democrats controlled Congress and were able to perpetuate the lie that it was NOT a tax. Now that a "right-leaning" justice has called Obamacare what it is and forced four "left-leaning" justices to do the same (or lose outright), we blame the justice for our own failure to protect the country at the ballot box. We need to do OUR job in November.

Select those whom you support with care, and then vote for the best one.

Having once emceed a "Women for Roberts" press conference for C-SPAN back in the day, I heard a lot of similar sentiments in the wake of his penning the majority opinion for the Supreme Court decision that "upheld Obamacare," as many have put it.

But the whole of the president's health care legislation wasn't actually the question before the Court.

I was not alone Thursday morning, thinking about the man who appointed the chief justice, former President George W. Bush. Reading the...
