BREAKING: Supreme Court upholds health care law

Updated

BREAKING: In a dramatic victory for President Barack Obama, the Supreme Court upheld the 2010 health care law today, preserving Obama’s landmark legislative achievement.

The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, who held that the law was a valid exercise of Congress’s power to tax.

The decision came as a sharp rebuff and disappointment to congressional Republicans, many of whom had expected the court to strike down at least some parts of the law.

Ed will have extended coverage of today’s decision tonight on The Ed Show at 8pET on msnbc with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi!
