Paul Campos on John Roberts and the ACA health care law decision

Sharing clips from The Young Turks can be confusing, because they do an online show as well as a cable show on Current TV. Sometimes things that appear on the Curren TV YouTube channel don't appear on The Young Turks YouTube channel.

This is a segment from the 06/28/2012 cable show on the Supreme Court's decision upholding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in which Cenk Uygur hears a very interesting analysis from Paul Campos on why it appears Chief Justice John Roberts almost voted with the four anti-ACA Justices, Who did Justice Roberts sell out in the SCOTUS decision to uphold 'Obamacare'?

Also, Jennifer Granholm on the Supreme Court politics here from The War Room, Roberts' decision on health care a victory for America 06/28/2012:

Her praise for Roberts is more effusive than mine. But I especially like her opening reference to Justice Owen Roberts and Franklin Roosevelt's proposal to expand the Supreme Court. It's a recognition that Roberts realized that even a corporate-oriented Democratic Party would be ready to push back hard if he had embraced the radical Scalia-Thomas dissenters' position with it far-reaching implications.
