Roberts' U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare
Written by 

obama-smileAccording to CNN, the U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts has written that the Health care law, or otherwise called Obamacare has been upheld by a 5-4 decision. Roberts was picked by republican President, George Bush, to be a Supreme Court justice.


WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

The Supreme Court just upheld the Affordable Care Act as constitutional, affirming Congress’ authority to require Americans to purchase health insurance coverage.

It’s no doubt an understatement to describe this as a huge victory for the law, and the Obama administration. The Affordable Care Act – after spending two years in legal limbo – now has the court’s backing to move forward. That does not, however, mean the law has smooth sailing ahead. Many obstacles still stand in the law’s way, ones that could derail its success nearly as much as an adverse legal ruling. Here’s a rundown of what the law faces in coming months. WASHINGTON POST

Twenty six states sued over the law, arguing that the individual mandate, which requires people to buy health insurance or face a fine starting in 2014, was unconstitutional. Opponents cast the individual mandate as the government forcing Americans to enter a market and buy a product against their will, while the government countered that the law was actually only regulating a market that everyone is already in, since almost everyone will seek health care at some point in his or her life.
