Obamacare Is Supreme Court Sanctioned Law - Justice Roberts Saved The Supreme Court
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Obamacare is law. The Affordable Care Act is law. I predicted passage with a 6 to 3 vote. We got a victory with a 5 to 4 vote. I was surprised that Justice Kennedy dissented. Chief Justice John Roberts saved the Supreme Court from itself. The United States Supreme Court which had decidedly taken a partisan stance, a Right Wing stance, from appointing George Bush as President in 2000 to allowing unlimited money in politics via the Citizens United case was in danger of becoming just an arm of the Republican Party.
If the Supreme Court had not upheld this law, millions of Americans would have been in dire straits. In fact many of our brothers and sisters would have in fact died directly from said result. Now that it is law and officially sanctioned by the Supreme Court it is high time that all of the misinformation, lies, and immoral attacks stop. It is the responsibility of all of us to deny the moneyed interest that are driving the misinformation from having further success in maligning the premise of the Affordable Care Act. To achieve this it is incumbent upon all of us to be educated on the bill and how it will affect all of our fellow citizens based on their individual healthcare situation. Please read all that needs to be known about the Affordable Care Act here.
