HANS VAN SPAKOVSKY: The Supremes Get It Fundamentally Wrong.

UPDATE: More from Andrew McCarthy.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Ann Althouse: How Chief Justice Roberts reenvisioned the individual mandate as a tax… and how he avoided the question of congressional accountability. “Now, this is awfully tricky. What about democratic theory? Shouldn’t Congress have to reveal such a devious scheme to the people so they can react and pressure Congress about what they want and don’t want? . . . I think it’s a real omission for Roberts not to address the accountability theory with respect to the mandate as a tax.”
