    The Dissenting Justices put it well...

    --The values that should have determined our course today are caution, minimalism, and the understanding that the Federal Government is one of limited powers. But the Court’s ruling undermines those values at every turn. In the name of restraint, it overreaches. In the name of constitutional avoidance, it creates new constitutional questions. In the name of cooperative federalism, it undermines state sovereignty.

    — The fragmentation of power produced by the structure of our government is central to liberty, and when we destroy it, we place liberty at peril. Today's decision should have vindicated, should have taught, this truth; instead, our judgment today has disregarded it

    Someone should have asked those guys if they actually like conservatives running to them whining like spoiled bitches every time they lose on an issue, it's like a child asking dad after mom said no.

    That didn't make an ounce of sense.

    Sure it did, when you look at the situation, The republicans used this SC case as a political tactic that backfired rather than an honest argument based on what is best. The precedent that new laws enacted by congress can be struck down simply by partisan SC votes on the flimsiest argument would be a dangerous one to make. The door has been slammed on this particular "run to mommy" tactic.
