• Roberts shows conscience for poor, business, partisanship

    Many were surprised that the chief justice,
    appointed by conservative Republican George W.
    Bush, upheld the more liberal provisions of the
    Affordable Care Act such as the individual
    mandate, touted by President Barack Obama as
    signature achievements of the health reform.
    Paul Rothstein, law professor at Georgetown Law
    School, says the man with whom he used to teach
    needed to land on \”the right side of history\”
    and morality as the deciding vote on an
    increasingly partisan court.
