Applauding Chief Justice Roberts, not Obamacare

Hooray for Chief Justice Roberts!

He lived up to the job of the Supreme Court of The United States. We the people of this country dislike Obamacare.

Roberts indicated that he may not agree with it, but he that's not the job of SCOTUS. His job is to oversee whether of not a law adheres to the U.S. Constitution.

Roberts will be vilified by many. He'll be called a turncoat. Arizona Sen. John McCain has said he should rethink his vote to approve Roberts.

McCain is political, Roberts is not. Elections have consequences. The House passed the law, the Senate passed the law, the president signed the law.

Roberts spoke the most important words of his decision when he said if you don't like what they -- Congress and the president did -- it's up to the American people, at the polls, to make the changes. Do not look to the Supreme Court to make law, but to determine if the law is constitutional.

Roberts did just that. His vote, the vote of a constitutional scholar made the difference. He should be applauded.

Now it's up to us. I believe Roberts deserve all of our gratitude. He put Mitt Romney in the White House.

About the Author

Jay Lawrence is a "true" conservative believing that less government is better government. Jay graduated from Columbia College in Chicago and went to WJPS in Evansville Indiana. Then on to bigger and better, Peoria. Illinois. Jay made it to Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Cleveland before coming to KTAR. Lawrence enjoys all sports and has played most, but has been a baseball fan above all and enjoys the Diamondbacks particularly when they win, tolerates the team when they lose. Favorite memories are opening day for Major League Baseball in the Valley and sitting in row three along third-base line when the D- backs won the World Series. One other memory he'll always carry with him, the time he spent with the Beatles and stood outside a nightclub finding dates for the Fab Four in Cleveland. Lawrence's musical tastes are eclectic, from classical to rap with country thrown in. He'd be just as likely to attend a Phoenix Symphony concert or ballet as he would a George Strait concert.
