Do you agree with the newly affirmed "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"?

On June 28, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5–4 that the "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," exceeded Congress’s authority under the commerce clause, but the law was a permissible tax under the Constitution. The centerpiece of the act is the individual mandate, a provision that makes it mandatory for every citizen to purchase private health insurance or risk paying a tax penalty.
