1. While sitting at JFK waiting for a plane, I realized that Carl, Peter, and Pete were on to something in their discussion of deferential, minimalist judicial activism.
2. All day I kept thinking of the Art. I provision requiring all bills for the raising of revenue to originate in the House. On the drive from Newport, RI to JFK I kept turning over in my mind clever rephrases of the text.
As the Roberts decision seems to be judicial tax writing, it was good to see that the dissenting justices were thinking the same thing. I came across this blog post.
I have more to say about all this, but I must board a plane. Gotta go!
