No doctrinal basis to fall back on? In other words, constitutional law has so far deviated from the text of the Constitution that to fall back on the Constitution itself feels like "uncharted waters?" I give up.That's how I saw it. WTF? Yeah.
COWARD!That is exactly what I was thinking the entire time while reading this article.
That being said, Godot has a point...and I'm not entirely sure that this article is reliable or merely some sort of speculation. I'm always leery of 'unspecified sources.' Of course, in this matter, that'd be the only way you would get leaks out of SCOTUS. They're that rare.
There is just so much wrong with this Opinion, I really don't know what to think. I've seen some bad ones and I've seen a bunch of decent to good ones...but I've never really seen SCOTUS actually MAKE **** UP, which is really what Roberts had to do to use the tax argument....because no one else did in oral arguments or briefs. I really have never heard of this ever happening.
