While I don’t totally agree with Charles Krauthammer’s piece, “Why Roberts Did It,” I have to confess, it comes closest to my reaction regarding yesterday’s ruling on ObamaCare. In essence, John Roberts was defending the Constitution when he wrote, “The Framers . . . gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it,” in his decision yesterday, thus destroying the Obama Administration’s argument that ObamaCare was and is a valid exercise of the Commerce Clause. It is clearly not.

But bottom line, Robert’s message to the American people (and conservatives) yesterday was, “If you want to roll this back, you will have to elect a new President and new Congress. That’s not my job.”
