Let's Be Clear

Since the Supreme Court ruled last week that Obamacare was constitutional after all, I've been reading and hearing from many quarters that what most upset conservatives about the ruling is that as a result a law we find objectionable will stand.  Not so.

Look, since the Republic was founded we've been saddled quite often with foolish laws.  And, as long as we, or a majority of us, persist in electing politicians who are similarly foolish, not to mention dense, vain, venal, power-hungry, or worse, we'll continue to be saddled with them from time to time.

The problem with the Court's ruling for conservatives is not that it upheld a foolish, perhaps an even disastrous law.  Rather, the problem is that the law it upheld was clearly unconstitutional.
