SCOTUS upholds Obama health care law

Well, House Speaker John Boehner said that Republicans wouldn't or shouldn't spike the ball if the health care law was struck down. But, on behalf of progressives everywhere, let me be among the first to do a big end zone dance on behalf of judicial sanity in America.

Can't say I expected it. Can't say I saw it coming. But a win is a win no matter how Obama would have spun it had the law been killed.

The key point in the decision is that justices ruled the individual mandate, which is a requirement that most Americans buy health insurance or pay a fine, is constitutional as a tax.

Break out the bubbly. This is a major election year victory for President Barack Obama, another BFD. Can't wait to see how Romney reacts.
