#SCOTUSCare: Internet Reacts to Supreme Court Ruling

President Obama’s signature health care law survived a potentially fatal legal challenge Thursday after the Supreme Court upheld the program’s subsidies for millions of Americans.

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority opinion. Justice Antonin Scalia, on behalf of the three dissenting justices, said people should start calling the law "SCOTUScare.” That hashtag was trending on Twitter as reactions poured in online from 2016 hopefuls, activists and average citizens.
