Obamacare Wins, We Lose

It was a brilliant move by far Right (but oh so likable) Chief Justice Roberts to side with the Dem-appointed Justices and uphold ObamaCare.  After all, this is a massive victory for corporate power, forcing citizens to buy an expensive insurance product that won't serve our needs very well but will profit industry, in lieu of receiving real health care.

Obamacare and its corporate mandate were born on the Right (as in Heritage Foundation) as a way to destroy the political prospects of any single payer system that would cover all Americans with a tax-funded system of guaranteed medical care.  This is the way all other industrial societies protect the right to health care, by taking it out of the hands of the giant insurance industry.  The right to health care is like the right to not be enslaved - there are  no half measures, and the insurance industry is the slave master.

Roberts may have brilliantly scored a "4-fer" victory:

1.)  He now has an interesting historic legacy.

2.) He and his Dem-appointed colleagues have given huge new powers to corporations, and further reduced the rights of citizens.
