Well, Brian Kemp has never been mistaken for a Rhodes Scholar. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I agree with PT that our Chief Justice is the Wild Card. In the end, his motivation might be to maintain the status quo in order to preserve the peace.

Agree, both parties had arguments in their favor on Obamacare, could have honestly gone either way. But think of the disruption to the economy & health care system if Obamacare would have been eliminated. How unpopular would republicans have been & how they would have been perceived at kicking 40 million people off of health care over a philosophical debate on ideology. The voters would have punished them, which is why I think the court will come down on the liberal side & re-establish Roe vs. Wade as the law & will set hard rules on almost everything. Right now it's about 60 to 40 in favor of Roe vs. Wade & keeping it like it is, do you want to **** of 60% of the electorate before a presidential election and loose a major voting point for republicans.
