Thank goodness Roberts put a limit on how the Commerce Clause is used. But, under what authority can he change the intent of Congress? Under what authority can SCOTUS change a law? This overreach is about as egregious as what Obamacare tried to do with the Commerce Clause justification of the individual mandate. Roberts should have seen that the mandate, AS WRITTEN BY CONGRESS, was struck down. In his decision, he could have invited congress to revisit the mandate as a tax and see if they could pass it as such. As it is, we have a law that was never intended or debated by congress. Roberts deserves all the heat he is receiving.
