“You want us to go through 2,700 pages?”
— Justice Antonin Scalia, on cutting up the health care reform law. (via theatlantic)
Yo, Scalia, I read both versions of the bill before the final version was passed and it wasn’t even my job to do so. It’s not that difficult.
If Scalia, or anyone else, has a better idea for how the court can do its job, there are plenty of people who would love to hear it. Dartboard? Drawing straws? How about they all just agree to side with Sotomayor?
Nah. Just write cut the chase and write some kind of withering, angry dissent, in which you will doubt mourn the end of capitalism and argue that we are all GOING TO DIE VERY SOON because if the government can tax people if they don’t buy health insurance then probably Hitler will come back from his grave and take us over next week. I mean obviously.
