The Supreme Court Says...

that Obamacare stays. The President won today. In a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling, the Affordable Care Act was upheld and deemed constitutional. The Republican party wanted the act knocked down. I am so surprised that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. The decision was tight, it came down to 5-4. The President is clearly having a great day. He has to feel vindicated on many levels about this ruling. It is a huge feat for him. "Today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives are more secure because of this law," - President Obama.

CNN has the best and most complete coverage of this historic ruling. Today has been a great win for the President. It also adds fuel to the fire for the election in November. Of course, President hopeful Romney had something negative to say. Stating that "What the court did not do in its last session, I will do on the first day if elected president of the United States, and that's to repeal Obamacare." That would be his first act as President. No job creation, no immigration laws, nothing of that matter. But, this has been the Republican agenda since the moment President Obama was elected. All I can do is shake my head and enjoy this little Democratic victory. Today, we won. Today, we celebrate this. Tomorrow is another day for another battle. Congratulations!
