“Today we learned (the health care plan) is simply a massive tax increase that is already contributing to skyrocketing health care premiums for middle class families.” “California has long been a leader and a champion for healthcare reform. With this ruling, we will continue the work we have started and we will be ready in 2014 to provide nearly six million uninsured Californians with health care when they need it. This landmark law will help us fix our broken healthcare system, control its skyrocketing costs, and promote the health of all Californians.” “ ... In general terms, we were not surprised that the law was upheld to the extent it seems to have been. The country’s health-care system has been broken and requires reform to extend care, especially those most in need such as individuals with pre-existing conditions, the poor, the elderly and students. ... There is likely to be a significant move in Congress to chip away or overturn the law altogether. We’ll keep a vigilant eye.” “I disagree with the decision. I don’t think the government should be responsible for health care. It makes government too big. That’s not how our country was founded.” “I think it’s great. So many people don’t have any insurance. You see people walking the streets with mental health problems and the hospitals keep them for 48 hours and let them go. Those people need help.”
