Long busy day, just now getting to my lonely laptop – and only for a moment before I crash – to say:
I think the ACA will be upheld by the Supreme Court, and I think it can be by a stronger majority than usual. I’m guessing 7-2. If Kennedy joins the liberals, I think Roberts might do the same, and encourage the other conservatives to join as well, and make the decision stronger, closer to unanimity, something he’s always desired for major decisions. If the bill is upheld, it’s an historic decision and Roberts will also want to put his name on it.
It wins. 7-2. And Roberts votes with the majority. Holdouts might be Alito and Thomas.
Hey . . . it’s months off. If I’m wrong, nobody will remember.
