Today was a victory. I'll leave it to others to analyze the margins of that victory, parse out what the majority of the Court did and didn't say, and what it means for the progressive movement, the health care reform movement, Democrats, Republicans, the tea party, Mitt Romney, and President Obama. There's a lot that can and will be said about all of the above between now and November.
But make no mistake about it, the Supreme Court's decision upholding the entirely of the Affordable Care Act is a victory. It's not merely a victory for the president and his party. It is a victory for millions of Americans whose fate rested in the hands of the Court, and who had much to lose if the Court decided differently.
Most of all, it's a victory for America, and a moment that brings us closer to becoming the kind of country we want to be.
