Conservatives Outraged at Supreme Court’s Decision

In light of the recent Supreme Court's decision on healthcare reform, America appears to be split between those who favor and those who dislike the high court's ruling. Read full article for more details

It’s been four days since the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare and already many citizens are outraged on the outcome. The intensity between conservatives and liberals appears to be increasing as a recent poll conducted by Gallup suggest. In a split decision amongst the American people, [1]46% agree with the Supreme Court’s decision and 46% disagree with the ruling that the health care reform law is constitutional. It’s no surprise that among the 46% of citizens that agree with the high court ruling, 79% of that vote came from Democrats while only 13% of the Republicans who took the survey supported the decision.

Immediately after the decision by the Supreme Court was announced, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made it clear that he would work to reverse the Supreme Court’s decision on the first day on the job if elected President. With the presidential election getting closer and closer each day, and an apparent win for Democrats on the Supreme Court decision, Republicans have no chance but to either move on to the next trending topic or continue to reject and reverse the Supreme Court’s decision on healthcare reform. According to another poll conducted by  Gallup, 85% of Republicans are leaning towards repealing the higher court ruling which suggest that the fight over Obamacare is far from over.

Many are wondering whether or not the Supreme Court’s decision will hurt Mitt Romney. Especially considering the fact that much talk is being pulled away from discussing about the status of the economy which appears to be Mitt Romney’s favorite attack on President Barack Obama. With November 6 around the corner, there’s no telling how the election will turn out; one thing is for certain though, either Democrats will add another win to their record or Republicans will finally gain the lead- a lead they been trying to get back since 2008 when Barack Obama was elected the President of the United States.
