Cagle Post: How the Fate of Obamacare Will Affect Our Economic Future

As the summer heats up, the U.S. Supreme Court will be ruling on the constitutionality of Obamacare, one of the most important cases to be decided since Citizens United v. FEC. From the start, Obamacare was an unpopular piece of legislation and a strong majority of the American people remains vehemently opposed to the law because they do not want the government to control their healthcare. They know that such massive government spending and intervention is unsustainable and will only result in increased costs and poorer results. All eyes are on the Supreme Court Justices because the fate of Obamacare will have major implications for the future of our nation.
