David Brooks is not a columnist I often agree with, but he makes sense to me writing about ObamaCare:
People are apparently angry that the court didn't rid them of a law they detest. But that's silly. If Americans want to replace this thing, they should do it themselves....Critics of the bill shouldn't be hating on Chief Justice Roberts. If they can't make this case to the voters, they really shouldn't be in public life....Republicans say they trust the people. If that's true, then they won't waste another futile breath bashing the court for upholding Obamacare. They'll explicitly tell the country how they would replace it. Democracy is a contest between alternatives, not a deus ex machina stroke from the lords in black robes.
