From Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts’ dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health (the gay marriage case):
This court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us.
Who is Roberts trying to fool? He should go back and read his own majority opinion in King v. Burwell. The Chief Justice had no trouble rewriting the Affordable Care Act so that, notwithstanding the plain language of the statute, low-income insurance buyers in states that operate their own insurance exchanges will receive federal subsidies (see “He Said That? 6/25/15—THE SUPREME COURT’S OBAMACARE TRAVESTY,” SLL). Roberts is just trying to restore his credibility with conservatives who thought he meant what he said about being “an umpire,” not a legislator in robes. Nice try, John, but Obamacare and its financial ramifications are a hell of a lot more important than whether or not gays can wed. Gay marriage will take the happy out of gay, but that’s their business. Obamacare will wreck our entire medical system, and Roberts’ name is on a blown opportunity and legally proper last chance to stop it by making it adhere to its own terms.
