Roberts slaps down politics and makes us all focus on giving something a try before howling.....

The healthcare ruling wasn't a win or a loss. Dems don't need to see it as a total win, and repubs don't need to see it as a total loss.
The can has been kicked down the road a bit, to allow the system to get in place and run for a while. Since none of us have crystal balls, is there anything wrong with trying out something that was engineered by a republican think tank, for 5-10 years? If something is allowed to play out for a decade, does that mean it lasts forever? Nope.
Roberts basically extricated the Supreme Court from the argument and placed much of the deciding on the states. The law will remain; the fullness of the law kicks in in 2 years and then we can all sit and wait and observe.
It may prove better than what we had before; it may not.
But what's wrong with giving it a chance?
If it doesn't work, states will get it relegislated.
I don't know why people see everything black and white. Aren't there many things in history that have evolved over time? Some got cancelled and some got kept.
I see today's decision as a chance for us all to quit seeing it as a win or loss, but an opportunity to stop being premature and wait and see....
