I suppose we shouldn't be all that surprised
that John Roberts decided to uphold Obamacare. He is, if nothing elde, a corporatist to the bone and the individual mandate seems likely to increase the profits of the healthcare giants by a pretty big amount. A law that requires people to purchase your product and subsidises those who can't buy it on their own? That's Aetna's wet dream!
It must have been a tough decision for Roberts, choosing between increasing corporate profits and sticking a thumb in the eye of Obama - - I mean deciding whether the law was Constitutional!
