Earlier today the Supreme Court in a narrow 5-4 ruling upheld the heathcare law put in place by President Obama. The law affects how Americans get health care, and also provides new court guidelines on federal power. The most controversial part of the ruling is the fact the court upheld that the individual mandate requiring people to have health insurance is valid as a tax.
As expected responses were loud and varied, ranging from the furious, to the downright hilarious. Check out the top 10 below:
@adamodellmusic: “I hate #Obamacare, I’m moving to Canada” – People who don’t know that Canada also has publicly funded medicare coverage
@trueholygoat: We must retake the White House AND the Senate in November. The only way ObamaCare Tax will be repealed. #tcot #teaparty
@Clarkey101: Honestly believe Romney would’ve won the election if Obamacare had been struck down. Gives Obama a good platform for November.

And of course……..
@SarahPalinUSA: Obama lied to the American people. Again. He said it wasn’t a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies.
