As for overall costs of the law, he said: "If you believe the Congressional Budget Office when they say it will cost $1 trillion, you have to also believe them when they say it will reduce deficits."
"This is a victory for Americans, not just for Democrats," she said of the ruling. "There are so many people whose lives literally depend on this ruling."

Still, Bottoms said the end result could make health insurers a thing of the past.
The law and its penalties could result in some smaller employers dropping insurance benefits for employees, leaving those people to buy their own individual policies.
In fiscal year 2011, the Marietta based system received $380 million in Medicare revenue, and $124 million in Medicaid revenue, he said. Those programs pay about 80 percent of the actual cost to provide care.
"The president is destroying the health care Americans have and replacing it with an inferior product," Olens said. "Find me someone who would prefer to have Medicaid than Blue Cross/Blue Shield or Aetna. We used to complain that insurers were regulating care, but now it's government bureaucrats regulating it.

Melissa Pike, chair of the Cobb Democratic Committee, sees the ruling differently.
Olens, who joined the legal challenge after taking office in 2011 and was in the courtroom for some of the oral arguments, also said he was stunned by the court's decision.
"When you consider what the average employer is contributing for coverage and contrast that with not offering coverage and paying the fine, you'll have a lot of people do the math," Bottoms said. "But employers who aggressively attract good employees will still be compelled to offer it as a benefit. Right now, there's no legal requirement for employers to offer coverage, but many do."
"I don't think Georgia can afford to have 2 million people without health coverage," he said. "It's free money to the state of Georgia."

Bottoms also said insurers are helped by the ruling.
ruling on expanding Medicaid essentially, the court found that the federal government cannot yank all of a state's Medicaid money if the state refuses to expand the coverage to more low income people is a win, Olens said.
David Bottoms, the senior vice president of Marietta based benefits consultants The Bottoms Group, read the entire legislation after it was approved by Congress and signed into law in 2010. The bottom line of Thursday's landmark decision is that health care costs are going to continue to rise for everyone, he said.
"Unfortunately, that's winning the battle but not the war," he said.
"There weren't any options for them to get coverage. This definitely helps them," Bottoms said. "Conversely, now that those people are in the market, average rates will go up for everybody, to offset the new risk."
"I think 20 years from now, this bill will have gradually killed the insurance carriers. At that point, we'll probably have universal government provided coverage, which some people will love and some people will hate," he said. "But there's no question it will Nike Air Max 95 Og Black
The ruling, and the law itself, clearly helps people with pre existing conditions, many of whom find insurance prohibitively expensive if they can find it at all.
"We can do better. We know there needs to be change, but we're on a fiscal cliff," he said.
Olens spent Thursday with likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney who Olens said raked in more than $2 million in online campaign donations on Thursday, after the decision was announced. Romney has said that on his first day as president, he would begin dismantling "Obamacare."
State Rep. David Wilkerson, a south Cobb Democrat, does not believe expanding Medicaid coverage will bankrupt the state or the country. The federal government would pay for the expansion for a few years, under the law.
As for implementation of the law, "the devil is in the details as to what we'll be required to do when all 1,500 mandates are identified," he said, adding that "anxious" was an apt way to describe his feelings.
As of Jan. 1, 2014, businesses with more than 50 employees will have to offer coverage or pay fines of $2,000 per employee per year. Health coverage costs are tax deductible, but the fines are not, Bottoms said.
fall along partisan lines. Conservatives like Attorney General Sam Olens, state Rep. Van Brink and Air Max 95 Slate On Feet Libertarian David Chastain were furious, while more liberal leaning leaders like Cobb Democrats chair Melissa Pike and state Rep. David Wilkerson were celebrating.
MARIETTA Cobb citizens reacted swiftly Thursday to the Supreme Court's 5 4 decision to uphold the provision of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 that requires most people to buy health insurance, or pay a tax.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority but was accompanied by the court's more liberal justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.
"No one would have expected" Chief Justice Roberts to go with the tax clause on the individual mandate, Olens said, especially since even the White House had insisted that the penalty to be paid by Americans who didn't buy insurance specifically is not a tax. Roberts ruled it is.
"Their worst case scenario was if the mandate were struck down but they were still required to insure anyone, although I suspect they would have been just as happy if the whole thing went away, just because of the regulation that comes with it," he said.
WellStar Health System CEO Reynold Jennings said he thinks Thursday's decision means only large care providers will survive. WellStar has been buying up many doctors' practices and putting those doctors on its payroll in recent years will continue that, he said.
