For months he's bobbed and weaved questions about a rift with Chief Justice John Roberts, and now Associate Justice Antonin Scalia is finally conceding that he was disappointed with Roberts' decision to uphold most of Obamacare last year.
"I was disappointed it came out the way it
did," he said, the first time he expressed his displeasure with the
surprise Roberts decision.
But he said Tuesday night during an address to Smithsonian supporters, "I don't work for him, and he doesn't work for me."
Many conservatives thought Roberts would
strike Obama down and there were reports he changed his mind at the last
minute. After the decision, there were several reports that Scalia was
feuding with Roberts, but he's denied that.
"Have you ever heard the expression, 'Win some
lose some?' That's life and just be resigned to it. Yeah, I am greatly
disappointed when I can't persuade a majority of my colleagues," said
Scalia, "but that's life, that's the system we have, that's why we have
nine justices instead of one. I'm disappointed, but I stumble on." (Source)
