On Thursday, June 28 the US Supreme Court upheld the majority of the Affordable Care Act, including the individual mandate, to a variety of reviews. The reviews have been heartfelt to funny to downright nasty. President Obama said, “This is a good day for millions of Americans who can continue to benefit from the protections and economic security provided by the Affordable Care Act”. On the funny to nasty side, radio commentator, Rush Limbaugh said he would move to Costa Rica if the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. Apparently, he does not realize Costa Rica has universal health care for its citizens.
