TOOBIN: Chief Justice John Roberts Was 'Red-Eyed And Unhappy'

Toobin doesn’t clarify, but the tweet may not be as surprising as it seems.

Although Roberts voted in favour of upholding the healthcare law — and wrote the court’s landmark opinion — he is a well-known conservative who served under former presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, so it’s easy to imagine that he is not huge fan of Obama’s healthcare law.
