“The only conservative justice who looked like he might uphold the law was Chief Justice Roberts who asked hard questions of both sides, all four liberal justices tried as hard as they could to make the arguments in favor of the law, but they were — they did not meet with their success with their colleagues.”_ Jeffrey Toobin, CNN
So what is going on that the justices are so divergently opinionated on what the Constitution says and how it applies to Obamacare? They know what the founders said in debating the Constitution. They know the books and philosophers that the founders referenced in writing it. They know what the states thought they were signing on for when they agreed to be a part of the union. And it seems, to this un-lawyered observer, that those “liberal” justices are disinterested in what the Constitution meant and in what it means to the average American who might read it.
I don’t call that interpreting the law. I would have to say that is making it up as you go. And that is not respect for the law. It is disrespect.
I believe I am in contempt.
