Roberts made the right call, there's nothing in Article I Section 8 that prevents Congress from levying taxes to pay for the general welfare. In fact, that's exactly what it says word for word. If Americans don't want to pay for that tax, they can easily replace their reps. (As Roberts noted)

But it was Pelosi and Reid that did Obama's bidding....so you can't just blame Obama. Presidents themselves, aren't allowed to create legislation.

I understand the mechanics but Obama signed the bill. Without his signature, it wasn't law. Therefore he was 1/2 the equation. Furthermore he openly campaigned on it in 2012 and was re-elected. If Romney was elected, he could submit budgets that don't include funding for Obamacare and only the Senate would be able to block it. (Too bad the Dems had full control in 2010 when the abortion happened)
