On the bright side, the majority of Americans hate obamacare. Since SCOTUS didn't knock it out, the only choice left is to get rid of Obama and the democrats in the Senate.

Confirmed:  The decision was 5-4, with Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas and Alito dissenting. According to SCOTUS blog, the four dissenters were prepared to strike...
