The decision is a victory for President Barack Obama, who has made the legislation a signature part of his presidency. Most anticipated Justice Anthony Kennedy would hold the deciding vote to save or overturn the ACA, but it was actually conservative Chief Justice John Roberts whose fifth vote saved the ACA. “Our precedent demonstrates that Congress had the power to impose the exaction … under the taxing power,” Roberts wrote in the court’s majority opinion. “This is sufficient to sustain it.” The entire Affordable Care Act (ACA) survived Supreme Court review Thursday. The decision was arguably the most anticipated in the court’s history. Justices also ruled the government expanding Medicaid benefits to those within approximately 138 percent of the federal poverty line is constitutional. However, they also ruled the government could not withhold Medicaid funding to states who chose not to expand their programs. The ACA was passed in 2010 after a grueling set of negotiations in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The nearly 3000-page long bill is considered landmark legislation for the Obama Administration.

But the Affordable Care Act does not impose a true legal mandate on Americans, he said. It simply requires those who do not have health insurance by 2014 to pay a tax penalty…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from the LA Times: Support The Young Turks by Subscribing Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: Find out how to watch The Young Turks on Current by clicking here:
