    . . . I don't think we'll ever know why Roberts switched his vote, though it seems obvious that he did so.  (David Nace has an interesting take on this.)  With a grand total of two exceptions, every point that Chief Roberts made could as easily have been make in striking down the PPACA and assigning it to the dustbin. Those two exceptions are:

    1. Any mandate not lawfully flowing from the Enumerated Powers cannot be enforced by any means other than taxation.

    2. The Court should not be used as a safety net to protect the citizens and the states from political carelessness.

    Why it was so important for Roberts to make those points, again, we may never know.  However, those are the two points that could not have been made any other way.  And the question must be:  Why were they so important?
