New Hampshire Reacts to the Supreme Court Decision on Health Care

Jun 29, 2012

Yesterday, in a 5-4 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to uphold most of President Obama's signature health care law.  The decision came with mixed reactions in New Hampshire. Some applauded the ruling while others plotted political revenge. Both Democrats and Republicans have called it a political 'leg up' for their hopes in November, but only time will tell who is right?  Today we'll look at this decision, how it will affect Granite Staters and how it may play out politically both nationally and here in New Hampshire.
