    Roberts just said: "Boy did these politicians sell you a bill of goods. Use the political process to do something about it, not the court"

    Anyone who wants to pretend that this matter was not appropriate for the sc to strike down in whole is either a fool or a liar.

    Roberts held the the door wide for any crazy notion that Congress can cook up, provided they can cover it in the General Welfare clause.

    But that's always been so ...

    It's up to the electorate to control congress.

    They don't even need to make the argument. Roberts will make (has made) it for them. Textbook definition of legislating from the bench a.k.a. judicial fiat.

    Under this decision there is no law that can be found unconstitutional, provided that a majority of justices percieve said law as having implied a tax/penalty/fee/surcharge/suggested donation/tithe/offering/etc...

    If by always you mean only after the mid-30s, then yes. As hard as it is to imagine there was a time when the SCOTUS did strike down government overreach.
