Obamacare Supreme Court Decision Sparks Outpouring Of Reaction

Posted: Updated:

The Supreme Court issued a ruling on President Barack Obama's signature health care law on Thursday, and the decision prompted an outpouring of reaction from within the political community.

The AP reports:

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The decision means the historic overhaul will continue to go into effect over the next several years, affecting the way that countless Americans receive and pay for their personal medical care. The ruling also handed Obama a campaign-season victory in rejecting arguments that Congress went too far in requiring most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty.

Chief Justice John Roberts announced the court's judgment that allows the law to go forward with its aim of covering more than 30 million uninsured Americans.

Below, a look at political reaction to the decision.
