Harry Blackmun was the Supreme Court justice that penned the Roe v Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States. Blackmun was nominated by GOP president, Richard Nixon and was thought to be a moderate to conservative. Since the Roe ruling, and it was a 7-2 ruling, Blackmun has been known as the justice that legalized abortion and conservatives, for the most part, have never forgiven him.
Today, Supreme Court Chief Justice sided with the liberal wing of the court and upheld ObamaCare. Roberts was nominated by George W. Bush, a conservative president and forever Roberts will be known as the justice that opened the door to the largest tax increase in the United States, socialized medicine and the downfall of medical care in the U.S. Conservatives are going to hate him while liberals, despite this ruling liberals will still hate him.
That will be Robert's legacy. He will go down as the 21st Century Harry Blackmun.
