SCOTUS on PPACA (ObamaCare) June 28, 2012

Live blog while watching the decision on Scotusblog.

PPACA (ObamaCare) is upheld and will go forward! Individual mandate deemed constitutional.

I will blog later with more details.

Well, that was an interesting morning and for many a bit of a surprise. The Supreme Court ruled that the individual mandate to purchase health insurance coverage is considered a "tax" and not a "penalty" and, as such, falls under Congressional authority and is constitutionally legal.

Undoubtedly there will be many announcements, blogs and video responses from the various parties with regard to this decision.

Below is a link to the PDF of the court's decision (all 67 pages):
