The Supreme Court handed down a historic decision on Thursday as it ruled to uphold a health care law that has been a controversial part of President Barack Obama's term.
We've heard opinions from both the right and the left about this ruling, and the debate, of course, has also reached Hollywood:
Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow)
"The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare! I heard Judge Roberts used his save. Incredible. That's the only one he gets for the entire season."
Nia Vardalos (@NiaVardalos)
"Congratulations to all on today's #Obamacare or as we Canadians call it, Thursday."

"Supreme Court has me in a good mood right now. America getting closer to universal access to affordable health care. It's about time."

"@BarackObama thank you so much4affordable healthcare. It saved my bro from going paralyzed from a car crash. His insurance dropped him. ... I know a lot of people are pissed, but without it...my brother wouldn't have had his back surgery that saved his legs."

"Wow, the Supreme Court passed @ObamaCare. I guess @JusticeRoberts wanted to be a part of Georgetown society more than anyone knew."

"I am so grateful for the Supreme Court, and I heart @BarackObama so much right now. He cares about us, the average citizens of this country, more than he cares about pleasing all the scared-to-change people in power. That's heroic, admirable, and exactly what we need. F*** yes Mr. President, you are a unicorn."
"Congrats to the @barackobama and the people of the US becuz we deserve to be a healthy....EVERYONE!"
