Oh my, what *will* the GOP/TP do when Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion and didn’t obey their will? He was joined by Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan. Thank you all for doing what’s right for the country.
Unsuprisingly, Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas were in the minority.
It’s about time the US moves toward other humane, developed nations that find caring for *all* of their citizens to be the right thing to do. It has always struck me that for a bunch of people who want to claim that the entire US is “Christian”, and who claim that they are the majority, that these same people want to ignore their own supposedly holy book that says one should take care of those who are less fortunate than oneself. I’d think that universal healthcare would be one of the first things that they would support. But they don’t. Well, I shouldn’t be suprised by more hypocrisy.
Of course, the GOP/TP will predict the end of the world because of this. Indeed, I’m sure some are waiting for a big pissed off Jesus to decend from the sky a la Revelation. Like other predictions of such things, that’ll fail too.
The only thing that concerns me about such decisions is that the GOP/TP has to feel even more desperate now. And desperate people do stupid, and often violent, things. However, even the thoughts of that possiblity should never prevent us from moving forward into a more equitable society.
