As my youngest daughter said, in an email to me, “Praise the Lord!” when she heard the news that the Affordable Care Act was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court. I said in reply, “Praise! Praise! Praise the Lord and Chief Justice John Roberts too!”
Roberts, voting with four others justices, is significant historically, and his legacy will grow – as that of Chief Justice Earl Warren, who led the 1954 school desegregation decision in Brown v. Board of Education.
This ruling will be a plus for President Obama in the November election. So many Americans supported the health-care act when it was fully explained.
Voters will determine whether we want to dismantle our country, as is the mission of the Republicans, or continue to remake our country great again.
Voters who are self-thinkers and educate themselves about issues will re-elect Obama. He has saved the nation from a depression and created positive relationships with many countries. He also has gone after our enemies and de-escalated wars. The economy is improving and will grow immensely as European nations stabilize.
He has had many critics, just as Abraham Lincoln had, but has remained strong, intellectual, poised, brave and confident through it all. And, granted four more years, he will continue to move us expressively forward.
