Supreme Court Upholds the Constitutionality of Obama Care

The 5-4 decision of the court pivoted around the controversial individual mandate and the question of whether government by law can force Americans to purchase something, even healthcare.  The ruling was upheld because the government has the power to tax.  Justice Roberts stressed that the ruling was not based on the merits of the law but rather it’s constitutionality, Roberts stated, “We do not consider whether the act embodies sound policies.  That judgment is entrusted to the nation’s elected leaders.”

Healthcare in America represents ONE SIXTH of our total U.S. economy.  How will this decision impact small business? Individuals who are now mandated by law to purchase healthcare or be taxed?  Is Obama Care going to be helpful or harmful? Vote now at http://www.ucount.us
