No hard link yet, I hope I'm wrong.

YEAH I'M WRONG, CNN IS WRONG!!!! MSNBC just confirmed it was upheld!@!!!!!

Hard link finally-

In a dramatic victory for President Barack Obama, the Supreme Court upheld the 2010 health care law Thursday, 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.

The Supreme Court has struck down the individual mandate for health care - the legislation that requires all to have health insurance.
