One year ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision in the case of National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, by a vote of 5-4.

To mark the decision's one-year anniversary, Reason looks back at a few of the negative consequences now unfolding as Obamacare becomes the law of the land.
