A look at Twitter today found these comments on the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act:

Tweets supporting the Supreme Court's decision:

Christine Delargy ?@CADelargy: Per her office, Nancy Pelosi is wearing her "lucky purple pumps today." She wore these the day #healthcare passed March 2010 #SCOTUS

Rep. Keith Ellison?@keithellison: Historic decision by #SCOTUS. #Obamacare can now take its place in history with Social Security & Medicare

Senator Harry Reid?@SenatorReid: I'm pleased to see #SCOTUS put the rule of law ahead of partisanship and ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional #ACA

Louise Slaughter?@louiseslaughter: The #ACA was never about politics. It’s about saving lives. I'm so pleased that it was upheld by #SCOTUS today. http://1.usa.gov/Qs0E3G

Dave Rubin@RubinReport: Only in America would so many overweight, diabetic people with heart disease be upset that they're gonna have health care. #SCOTUS #Obamacare

Tweets weighing in against the law:

Rick Santorum?@RickSantorum: #SCOTUS outcome is major setback for freedom & biggest permanent tax increase in our nation’s history. Elections matter.

Michele Bachmann?@TeamBachmann: I'm disappointed #SCOTUS thinks gov't knows better than people. I won't stop fighting #Obamacare until is full repeal. RT if you're with me.  (507 retweets in less than half an hour)

Sarah Palin?@SarahPalinUSA: Obama lied to the American people. Again. He said it wasn't a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies.

Andy Borowitz@BorowitzReport: #SCOTUS UPDATE: Romney Blasts Supreme Court, Calling Affordable Care Act 'Worst Idea I Ever Had'

Jehmu Greene?@jehmu: If u are heartbroken over #SCOTUS decision on Obamacare, try remembering the mandate was a Republican idea in the first place. Feel better?

Chad Pergram?@ChadPergram: Rep. Allen West (R-FL): I think this is the worst decision that could have come down for the Obama administration. #healthcare #SCOTUS
