One of the loudest cheers for yesterday's Supreme Court ruling upholding ObamaCare came from none other than Sarah Palin, who described it as a heaven-sent gift to the Republican Party. "Thank you, SCOTUS,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “This ObamaCare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened. Thank God." She said the ruling shows that the health care law is "the largest tax increase in history," although the tax penalty only applies to those who can afford health insurance but refuse to buy it, the Los Angeles Times notes.

Another strong reaction came from Rick Santorum, who accused Obama of disregarding the Constitution and displaying arrogance that surpasses that of Richard Nixon, Politico reports. He warned that Obama would be "a very dangerous president to re-elect." On the other side of the partisan divide, Michael Moore was feeling triumphant. "The right wing has just had their worst smackdown since the day O was elected," he tweeted. "The path of history continues to head toward univ health care." (More Sarah Palin stories.)
