It does not matter why Chief Justice John Roberts did what he did in the Obama Care case. The results are the same regardless of motive. He betrayed the Constitutional role of the independent judiciary to protect the freedom of citizens of the United States from the tyranny of the Government. In so doing he revealed himself to be both intellectually dishonest and lacking in moral courage. In essence, Roberts spit in the faces of the framers of the Constitution. I personally think that Roberts was more interested in his press clippings than any principles; but that really does not matter. The damage to the Republic is done.
