The ball's in your court--not mine.
That's what Chief Justice John Roberts seems to be saying to the country in the landmark decision he wrote upholding most of Obamacare.
"It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choice," Roberts wrote in the majority opinion.
Nor does the Supreme Court rule on the wisdom of public policy. "Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation's elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if people disagree with them," he added.
Republicans are ready to take him up on that offer and are busy using the unfavorable decision to turn out more voters in the fall, even though they have little hope of getting rid of Obamacare now.
