The U.S. Supreme Court narrowly upheld the Affordable Care Act by a 5 to 4 vote.  It was expected to be a close vote, but what was surprising was Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the majority to uphold the healthcare legislation.  OSU Cascades Political Science Professor Jim Foster says Chief Robert's decision was a bold and important move.  “One of the adroit characteristics of Justice Robert's decision. Everyone was lining up saying this Court has gotten so partisan that whichever way it goes, it will be driven by politics. In writing an opinion going against what everyone assumed was his ideologue leanings, he takes the Court out of the limelight and off the hot seat.”  Many believed that Justice Anthony Kennedy who is often the swing vote, would be the swing vote in this case, but he squarely sided with the conservatives.
