Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare

Barack Obama

In a decision that affects the lives of millions and will surely give President Obama a boost in the upcoming election, The Affordable Care Act, the landmark legislative achievement of President Obama‘s first term, will largely stand.

Chief Justice John Roberts penned the majority decision: “The framers created a federal government of limited powers, and assigned to this court the duty of enforcing those limits. The court does so today but the court does not express any opinion on wisdom of the Affordable Care Act under the constitution. That judgment is reserved to the people.”
