If the Supreme Court Overturn Obamacare it Will Leave Millions of Americans HOPELESS

I believe that overturning Obamacare by the United States Supreme Court will be a national tragedy because it will leave tens of millions of Americans HOPELESS.  The 30 million Americans who will not gain health care coverage and the millions of minorities in this country who depend on the Court to protect the rights of all Americans will lose faith and HOPE that the Court is a non-partisan third branch of government.

How could we trust the Court to protect our constitutional rights regardless of color, religion, sex, and political party affiliation if they overturn this nation’s first African-American president’s signature accomplishment? How would our children make sense of recorded history that includes five conservatives Supreme Court Justices who were appointed by Republican presidents overturning the unprecedented health care reform bill?
