It’s a sad day for all the liberty-loving people of this nation.
After some initial confusion, it has been confirmed that the Supreme Court has upheld the individual mandate — the heart of Obamacare — in a 5-4 decision.
Ross Kaminsky of TAS laments that “[this] is nothing short of a disaster for the nation, and a huge black mark on John Roberts’ legacy.”
