Mike's Blog Round Up
June 26, 2015

Viva Obamacare!

The Supreme Court's overwhelming 6-3 ruling in King v. Burwell is great for Obama's legacy, of course, another major legal victory for his signature accomplishment, but the real winners are, you know, the millions and millions of Americans who need Obamacare simply to have access to affordable health care.

(And Republicans secretly cheer Obamacare's survival, but for different reasons.)

Balkinization: Reaffirming the social contract.

The Rude Pundit: Punching Scalia in the balls.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Playing good Republican cop.

Gin and Tacos: Observing American crapceptionalism.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) Infidel753 will be standing in for me tomorrow, but I'll be back on Sunday.
