There's no way in hell Republicans want this ruling to be upheld by SCOTUS. What they want is to be seen wanting it upheld by SCOTUS, and then to criticize Roberts when he dismisses it. It's all such a con.

The aftermath of that would be a political massacre for the GOP, and a straightforward mandate for Democrats to rebuild the health system along the lines they prefer.

Imagine this ruling does get upheld by SCOTUS. In that world, a Republican judge cuts tens of millions of people off health insurance mere weeks after Republicans lost a midterm election for merely trying to cut those people off health insurance.

"Legal experts on the left and the right believe the arguments being made by Republican-led states are, on their face, uncompelling and unlikely to succeed in overturning the Affordable Care Act." But as writes, they've been wrong before.

If you were ever tempted to think that right-wing judges weren't activist -- that they were only "enforcing the Constitution" or "reading the statute" -- this will persuade you to knock it off. This is insanity in print, and it will not stand up on appeal.

I don't think this kind of nonsense is going to kill the Affordable Care Act. But the continued assault on Obamacare is very much why Democrats are going to pass some version of Medicare-for-All next time they hold power.

When I talk about gerrymandering, I often see people spit back, "Democrats gerrymander too!" And it's true. They do. Look at what's happening in New Jersey. There should be no partisan gerrymandering anywhere. Politicians shouldn't pick their voters.

You can't separate high homelessness from high housing costs. And you can't separate high housing costs from zoning. I continue to think, pace , that this is one of the most damaging ongoing failures in progressive governance.

Putting aside the Crossfit-specific vision here, the broader idea that huge gains are possible if medicine and insurance reorganize around health rather than sickness is true.

The guy who ran for president promising to be history's greatest dealmaker has no actual interest in making deals. We elected a reality TV star, not a master negotiator.
