Shrewd Decision on ACA

The way I see Roberts decision is that it was Solomonic: he gave Obama what he wanted, the ability for ACA to go forward; he gave conservatives what they wanted, a limit on Congress's power to regulate interstate commerce; he gave Romney what he wanted, the ability to beat Obama up over his "raising taxes" without the necessity to come up with positive proposals to replace ACA.

Just my two cents.

[Updated: Ezra Klein agrees.]
