supreme court up holds Obamacare

who would have thunk it????

Updated at 11:55 a.m. ET: In a dramatic victory for President Barack Obama, the Supreme Court upheld the 2010 health care law Thursday, preserving Obama’s landmark legislative achievement.
The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, who held that the law was a valid exercise of Congress’s power to tax.
Roberts re-framed the debate over health care as a debate over increasing taxes. Congress, he said, is “increasing taxes” on those who choose to go uninsured.

I am glad it was upheld. Children can be insured under their parents plan until they are 26. No preexisting conditions for children--like my Ingrid. John Roberts was appt. by Bush.

Good day for all. Many of those who wanted the law brought down are the ones it helps and they are just too stupid to know it.
