SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – The Supreme Court has upheld the individual mandate in President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. This morning’s ruling hands Obama a campaign-season victory in rejecting arguments that Congress went too far in requiring most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty.

Metro Detroiters calling into the WWJ Newsradio 950 newsroom have had plenty to say about it.
Here are some of your comments: 

– “I cannot understand why this was passed … I just think this is a big step toward socialism.”

– “This truly makes us a progressive state and country and I think that it was a very wise choice.”

– “What do you do if you can’t afford to pay the fine? Go to jail?”

– “I think that those that are against it will, in time, see that it was the right thing.”
