The Supremes speak

So, this just happened.

Justices Back Federal Health Care Subsidy - New York Times headline

The Supreme Court has spoken. Does that mean that the opponents of the Affordable Care Act will finally accept reality and beat their swords into plowshares? Not likely. Just read the statements of the Republican candidates for the presidency in response to the decision. They've spent years enflaming their base with hatred for this law. To give up now would be to disappoint that base that the candidates need for a primary win. So, no doubt the fiery, intemperate rhetoric will continue. 

But, for now, the health care of millions of Americans is safe. And that is a good thing.
