According to SCOTUS blog, the ACA is upheld, the mandate is constitutional. We’re still trying to figure out the limitation on the Medicaid extension — this could be a problem in terms of extending coverage to the poor and near poor in certain states.
But in general, a clear victory for necessary reform. I’ve got to say — I’m not thinking politics right now. We’ve got to fix our health care system, and ACA, while not perfect, is a good way to start doing so. Now that it’s the law of the land, it’s time to blow past the politics and implement it as quickly as possible.
