I am of course thrilled that the Supreme Court saved the Affordable Care Act today. From a legal standpoint, this was a stupid, stupid case that shouldn't even have been heard, but now that it has, the ACA is safe for the foreseeable future.
Justice Scalia, as befitting a partisan hack, contradicted one of his own dissents in wanting to kill the ACA for what amounted to a typo. He and Justice Thomas can't leave the Court soon enough.
Now maybe tomorrow we'll get nationwide Same Sex marriage.
