14 of the best reactions to King v. Burwell on Twitter

On Thursday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered its opinion on King v. Burwell regarding the fate of the tax subsidies under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In a 6-3 decision, the SCOTUS determined the subsidies will be upheld.

The PPACA is undoubtedly a point of contention in the political sphere, with right-leaning lawmakers seeking to strike down the subsidies, largely as a blow to President Obama's larger healthcare reform efforts. Supporters of the subsidies cite the millions of previously uninsured Americans who now can afford coverage as one reason to uphold them.

Individuals across the political spectrum took to Twitter upon hearing the court's decision. Here are some of the best Tweets we saw responding to the King v. Burwell opinion.

Washington Post outlined how the justices were divided on the decision.

There was excitement and relief from those in support of the law.

Opponents voiced their anger and vowed to keep fighting.

Tom Daschle, former US Senate Majority Leader, sent his first Tweet in response to the decision.

Dan Diamond, executive editor of the Daily Briefing Blog with The Advisory Board Company, shared how hospital stocks are responding to the decision.

It was a landmark day, but a few Tweeters reminded others the work isn't finished yet.
