Sarah Palin has never been known to hold her tongue, particularly when it comes to President Obama and his initiatives, and she took to Twitter about a half hour ago to voice her opinion about the surprising and controversial vote made by the Supreme Court today to uphold Obama’s health care initiative.
Of course, she was not alone. Thousands of politicians and celebrities have taken to social media to start a conversation about the act, which would tax citizens in 2014 who don’t have health insurance/Medicaid. Under the mandate, everyone would be required to purchase health insurance, Medicaid would be made available to over 16,000 people, and no one could be denied by health care providers over a pre-existing condition.
Palin and several others tweeted about the news as soon as it broke.
Still amazes me that a U.S. President can campaign for 32 million more Americans to get health care – and be pilloried for it.
In honor of the Supreme Court’s decision I am going to eat Taco Supremes for lunch while watching Night Court #SCOTUS
#SCOTUS outcome is major setback for freedom & biggest permanent tax increase in our nation’s history. Elections matter.
SCOTUS upholds Obamacare – It is up to us now. Only way to stop Obama is to defeat him in November. Time to stand and fight.
Interesting line from #SCOTUS: We don’t consider whether Act embodies sound policies. That judgment is entrusted to elected leaders (1/2)
