 So, I'm sure that you heard....or at least I hope you have.

The big news is that the Supreme Court (or SCOTUS as we twitter peeps like to say) upheld the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", more commonly known as Obamacare.

This landmark and very controversial decision came down to a hairsplitting 5-4 vote. Even the big whigs at HQ in DC at United Way Worldwide issued a statement on the decision:

"United Way Worldwide believes that every American should have access to quality, affordable health care. United Way also knows the importance of investing in community-based prevention to keep people healthy in the first place. With a 125-year history of working with business, government, and community partners, United Way works to identify community needs and improve the life for all people. Our goal is to ensure that every American has the opportunity to live a good life, and we know access to coverage and prevention help build a better world for our kids, stronger families, a secure middle class, and our country's competitiveness.

In light of today's decision, United Way will continue to work with our corporate, community, and government partners to connect as many Americans to health insurance coverage and healthy choices as possible. United Way will continue to explore, develop, share, and implement the various strategies that successfully link the American people to quality, affordable health care and build healthy communities across the country."

As of right now, this is all we have for you - but I'll be back with a follow up blow about what this rulling could mean for South Carolina and its citizens.
