Because it's good news for the average American and it's 2012 and it's a civilized country where people should have access to affordable healthcare whether I live there or not?

Opinion written by the Chief Justice. My respect for him has gone up considerably. Even though I always felt the constitutional issue in this was pretty clear, I didn't expect it to turn out this way.

I am surprised that it was Roberts putting it over the top, rather than Kennedy. Big "wow".

Want to see the entire ruling. Fascinating that the individual mandate was upheld but NOT (apparently) via the Commerce clause.
