Why the Entire Health Care Law Might Be Thrown Out

Sean Trende: "The real Supreme Court news on Tuesday wasn't the Arizona immigration decision or even the summary reversal of the Supreme Court of Montana in the 'Citizens United 2' case. It was that the chief justice of the United States didn't write any of these opinions."

"This is critically important, because we can now deduce with a reasonably high degree of certainty that John Roberts is writing the lead health care opinion. If we are right about this, then the law is in even deeper trouble that most observers imagined."

However, Ed Whelan reads the tea leaves and concludes "the Court will invalidate the individual mandate by a 5-4 vote."

Businessweek: Anthony Kennedy, the Justice everyone is watching.
