    Paul Horner, legal clerk for Justice Roberts, spoke with National Report: “This is a tough decision for Justice Roberts. The issues in this case are extremely complex and all Justices are aware of the implications this decision will have on the future of both Obamacare and of the insurance industry in general. The slippery slope of allowing employers to decide what to and what not to cover with regards to employees health is of concern. Who is to say a company could not come up with religious arguments against things like blood transfusions, heart transplants, etc. Outside of that, suggesting that companies themselves have religious beliefs is almost laughable and while it is inline with the Citizens United ruling, takes a step that is a bit much for Justice Roberts to swallow. My personal opinion is that he (Roberts) will again side with upholding the President’s signature legislation and leave the court out of the spotlight. Justice Roberts has a long history of doing the right thing while maintaining the honor held by the court and it is believed he will do the same here.” - See more at: Justice Roberts to Rule Against Hobby Lobby, Uphold Obamacare Mandate for Contraception Coverage - National Report | National Report

    All he had to say was the Commerce Clause invalidated the Freedom of Association part of the 1st Amendment and now it's going to invalidate the Freedom of Religion part.

    Between the Commerce Clause, the Spending Clause, and Congress's taxation powers, there is nothing that is outside of the Federal government's scope. The Constitution as a limit on federal authority is a dead idea.

    I hope this fuck that leaked this gets hanged. But then Justice Roberts is hanging himself and his reputation going against the Constitution and the will of the people IF he rules against Hobby Lobby. It's a terrible blow to the first Amendment. But I suppose the left is just OK with that, huh, GUANO?

    As closely guarded as SCOTUS is with their decisions, this entire conversation is suspect. For a clerk to comment that a litigant's position is laughable, is not something that should be readily believed.

    It's BS. If news leaked out about how justices would vote it would be the end of the Supreme Court.

    Roberts will not gut what he originally ruled was constitutional.in regards to the AHCA, the rightwing has tried to pull every stunt they could think of and have been foiled time and time again from the 43 failed votes to repeal AHCA to shutting down the government led by that kook Tedey Cruz, now to the latest stunt by the rightwing bible thumpers, this again will fail

    "Who is to say a company could not come up with religious arguments against things like blood transfusions, heart transplants, etc. Outside of that, suggesting that companies themselves have religious beliefs is almost laughable"

    Yes, very Laughable!!!

    Especially if what leaked out was that the Justices had already made up their minds before a single word was heard. It would be grounds for having the whole ruling thrown out and reheard and would be grounds for Roberts' impeachment.

    If this is true, Roberts will be removed. It's no different from a municipal court clerk whispering "The fix is in."
