Michael Savage: Roberts affected by medication. Swing vote in Obamacare case suffered epileptic seizures
Posted on June 29, 2012 at 12:35 PM EST
Talk radio host Michael Savage told his listeners that the use of mind-altering drugs to treat seizures could explain why Bush-appointed Chief Justice John Roberts upheld Obamacare today along with four liberal colleagues.
Roberts shocked most analysts by siding with Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor in a 5-4 decision upholding the lynchpin provision of the presidentâ€™s signature legislation, the so-called individual mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.
The physician urged Savage to check out Robertsâ€™ history with epilepsy, referring him to a New York Times report in August 2007. The article said that after Roberts suffered a seizure, doctors were weighing whether to treat him with powerful drugs with â€śtroubling side effects,â€ť including mental slowing and forgetfulness.
