The three days of oral arguments that took place in the U.S. Supreme Court this week regarding President Obama's health care plan provide an interesting look into what has happened over past years in the political world and how that has affected the judiciary.

Apples, oranges and zebras, oh my!

WASHINGTON -- By now you've heard it plenty: The Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka "Obamacare," is like the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This creative bit of dot-connecting began with President Obama, and has been perpetuated by countless talk-show hosts and their guests.
