President Obama’s Awesome Reaction When He Learned Of The Supreme Court’s Health Care Ruling

When President Barack Obama learned that the Supreme Court had rejected a major challenge to his signature health care law, White House photographer Pete Souza was there to capture the moment.

On Thursday, the court ruled 6-3 against invalidating subsidies for people who live in states with federal health care exchanges, marking the second time in three years that the court has rejected a challenge to the Affordable Care Act. The ruling preserves health care for an estimated 13 million Americans.

Souza shared photos of the president’s reaction on Medium:

“Today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law in front of the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” Obama said of the ruling Thursday.

Meanwhile, conservatives reacted in a collective meltdown on Twitter.
