It's the way of the law, says the Supreme Court of the United States!

In a 5-4 decision, the liberal wing with Chief Justice John Roberts stated the law is validated and the Republicans concerns shouldn't stop the controversial individual mandate. Dissent comes from Justices Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Gingsberg, Steven Breyer, and Elena Kagan stood firm with the decision.

Earlier, I wrote that it was a 6-3 decision. But it turns out I was misinformed by The Drudge Report and CNN. The decision was another partisan 5-4. Justice Anthony Kennedy stood with the conservative wing. Kennedy is the only swing justice in the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the president's lawyers and the liberal wing of the court. 

President Barack Obama's signature health care reform law is validated and the Republican governors and lawmakers are defeated!

This overreach of government claim made by Republicans is not good enough to stop the health care law!

In the words of Fox News and Steve Doocy, "THIS IS HUGE!"

Get ready for the reactionary outrage from the conservative/extremist wing of the Republican Party. Expect death threats from the deranged! The death threats and nasty insults will be directed towards President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California, Minority Leader), the Supreme Court Justices and those who defended the law.

An energized base of the Democratic Party and its allies of the progressive movement!  The president will look a lot less weaker, I hope!

Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama will talk about it and of course we will too!

Update: 11:15am | June 28, 2012 - Congressman John Boehner (R-Ohio), the United States Speaker of The House announced that a congressional vote on repealing Obamacare is slated for July 7, 2012.

Update: 11:25am | June 28, 2012 - Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Majority Leader of The United States Senate has applaud the decision and urged Congress to put forth jobs and student loans bill.

Update: 11:45am | June 28, 2012 - Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney delivers remarks to the ruling. Vows if he is elected, the law is repealed. Romney makes concerns to Supreme Court failure to acknowledge the law is a "job killer". Makes generic talking point speech about how "big government" and "intrusion" is not the way to victory. He makes blanket statements but no solutions.

Update: 12:15pm | June 28, 2012 - President Barack Obama delivers remarks to the nation. Addresses the American Health Care Reform Act decision and corrects the misinformation from conservatives agitators such as Rush Limbaugh. Takes a jab at Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

MSNBC obtains a cell phone video of Congresswoman Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) reacting to the news of the Supreme Court ruling. Unfortunately she was excited over a decision that didn't happen. It turns out it was in the favor of President Obama. Many conservatives are upset over Chief Justice John Roberts and they're taking their reactionary outrage online.
