Williams affirmed without majority opinion

Scotusblog reports that Williams was affirmed 5t-4, with Justice Alito writing for four justices (the Melendez-Diaz and Bullcoming dissenters), Justice Thomas concurring in the result, and the others dissenting. That's all I know for now; I haven't seen the opinions. I'll post them soon, and offer some comments, probably today, maybe tomorrow. I also know that the Court did not grant the petition for certiorari in Rose -- but I haven't seen the order list yet, so I don't know for sure whether it was denied.

So, the Supreme Court acts a little less nutty than usual in upholding the president's health care program. At least this law is a beginning. Thirty million people who were previously not covered are now covered. The health-care insurance industry and the pharmaceutical industry still are in the driver's seat vis-a-vis prices and privatization of care in the US, but the discussion on medical care in the US lives to fight another day.
