Unhappy Anniversary: The Supreme Court's Obamacare Decision Turns One


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. According to Chief Justice John Roberts' controversial ruling in favor of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, "It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."
