Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner React to the Supreme Court's Health Care Ruling


While she claps, he rages:

On the one hand, the Supreme Court largely upheld President Obama's signature legislative achievement, a health care law that Rep. Nancy Pelosi was instrumental in passing during her time as Speaker of the House. On the other hand, the court upheld the law's individual mandate under the taxing power, which means that Rep. Boehner and his fellow Republicans will get to run against President Obama and the rest of the Democrats as having passed an unpopular law that breaks the president's explicit promise not to raise taxes on the middle class.
