That weird popping sound
"Well," thought I, "that explains it. Tea Party heads are exploding."
I've heard and read a few comments indicating that the commenter was surprised by the 6-3 decision. I wasn't. Chief Justice Roberts is a pragmatist more than he is an ideologue. He's also a corporatist. He wasn't going to do anything that would hurt the insurance industry or big business in general, and, despite all the rhetoric to the contrary, the ACA has been good for both.
