And not just because of the extremely hot weather.
I cannot believe that the SCOTUS upheld mandatory Medicaid. Two things suggest themselves to me:
1. It takes a lawyer to be able to misinterpret the Constitution--a remarkably clear and concise document which is supposed to limit what our government is legally allowed to do to us--badly enough to mistake that abortion of a law for anything close to "constitutional."
2. John Roberts is not a constitutionally conservative justice. He was the deciding vote on mandatory Medicaid. A few days ago, he voted against Arizona, and for the administration's permissive policies toward illegal immigration.
Where Roberts is concerned, either the Left has something on him, or he is simply a traitor to his office.
I am actually incandescently angry. I am so angry about this that I can't actually express it. I am going to have to bury myself in reading as far away from the news as I can get to calm down enough to write a FFOT post on this that's even close to coherent.
Right now, I'm going to go tickle my daughter. Baby giggles always help.
