The writing of law is up to the Legislative Branch, not the Judicial. In both instances of review the Supreme Court re-wrote parts of the law. It was particularly bad this last time, as the matter before the Court was if the IRS could change the wording of a piece of legislation to make it apply where it was not intended to apply. The Court agreed, therefore, it can be possible in the future for the EPA or the IRS to change any passed piece of legislation to their liking. The Supreme Court, in two ObamaCare cases, has basically ended the role of the Congress (and therefore the people themselves) in writing law.

"YOUR DEMOCRACY IS NOT MERELY ABOUT VOTING...IT IS ABOUT COMPROMISE FROM MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE, YOU MAKE 1 GREAT COUNTRY" | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
You have a fair point. The problem is that Congress doesn't want to work with the president, I mean...its safe to say that they were lobbied to do so. I find it absurd that they are unwilling to compromise on the behalf of the people. I support Universal healthcare to all, but that being too expensive to the taxpayer, we make healthcare affordable. I see that as a compromise, and that is what our democracy was founded on.

I feel that congress has a job to do, but if they aren't going to get actual work done, then how are problems going to get fixed. I see it as both the Judicial's fault, and as Congresses fault. We want to try to get things done, but congress won't do it...that doesn't mean that the court can just change it whenever.

I also find it absurd that a cartoon (see meme) depicts our democracy better than our actual government. Even though we live in a republic, I do feel that we all have a part in our government

If the people want something, such as government health care, badly, they are expected to vote out those representatives who oppose it. That is how it was meant to be. It's slow, and inefficient, but if you want quick and efficient, you're not going to get there by any democratic means.

fair point, the problem is that much of the country is both uneducated or not willing to vote.
