Our take: Chief Justice John Roberts voted for the health care ruling, which shocked conservatives who thought they could rely on him to help sink Obamas signature legislative accomplishment.
Chief Justice John Roberts promised not to pitch or bat, but he sure threw a curve ball Thursday.
By voting to uphold President Barack Obamas health care law, Roberts shocked conservatives who thought they could rely on him to help sink Obamas signature legislative accomplishment.
Instead, Roberts unexpected 59-page opinion will go down as his most significant, legacy-defining act since he joined the court in 2005 and history ultimately could record it as the most consequential opinion of his tenure as chief justice.
