An activist court would have behaved as a "super" legislature and this one didn't this time.<quoted text>ONE PARTY passed the legislation. You can't say that about the Iraq War, can you?
Deference? It will be repealed. The greater danger is an activist (yes, activist) court calling the mandate a "tax." Wait till you see hoe that precedent plays out in the future.
What possible relevance would it have (if true) that one party was responsible for passing legislation?
Of course it isn't true. If only the Democrats had their say on this legislation it would look a lot different and be a lot better.
