    I get the feeling you’re right, though lots of people on the right are praising Verrilli, it’s probably because they’re trying to be nice. How does one allow health insurance, which is at its essence about dealing with the risk of one day requiring health care one cannot afford, to simply be labeled a “commercial good” and then try to argue on those grounds? Insurance is not, strictly speaking, a good, like broccoli or emergency services. It’s a mechanism for dealing with risk! It cannot be properly compared to a good! His goofball response that “no it’s different because eventually you’re need health care” is idiotic. Why is someone with no understanding of insurance arguing this case??

    I was in the Court. Verrilli’s opening was bizarre. There was some palm-wiping, and I had the sense that the sip of water had nothing to do with a scratchy throat.
