Good grief! Hewitt gives new meaning to the word "hack". Roberts gave the feds unlimited power to control behavior by taxation and Hewitt calls it "genius". Do community service, or pay a tax. Eat low fat foods, or pay a tax. Use mass transit, or pay a tax. Vote, or pay a tax. Rub your head and pat your belly, or pay a tax. This makes the commerce clause look like chains on the legislature by comparison. Hewitt wanted a justice that would refrain from striking down laws passed by the legislature so that the Defense of Marriage Act could be kept from being overturned. Hewitt got the Supreme Court Justice that he wanted and now we have to live with the resulting disaster.
