Sure sounds like CJ is gone to the dark side

Link:  Roberts Switched Views to Uphold Health Care Law

Wow, didn't take long for sources to leak to the press what went on behind the scenes.  The dissenting justices were apparently furious for being double-crossed, and refused to mention the CJ's opinion in the dissent, because they'd given up on arguing with him.   Kennedy supposedly led the effort to bring the Roberts back into the fold after he went wobbly in May.   They refused to join the Chief even in the portion of his decision they agreed with, namely the Commerce Clause limitations.

Sounds like a permanent change in working relationship to me.
