After many months waiting, on June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court finally ruled on the constitutionality of health care reform with a 5 to 4 vote.
The landmark ruling upheld President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. President Obama praised the ruling, saying that it is a victory for all Americans.
On the opposite side of the fence, Republican Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney called this law bad law and bad policy regardless of its constitutionality. He further promised that once in office, his first action will be to repeal this law.
He also said that, in order to repeal the law, President Obama must be voted out of office in November. Interestingly enough, the current Republican controlled House of Representative has tried to repeal this law in one form or another 33 times.
