Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold subsidies crucial to ObamaCare.

She followed up the tweet with a message imploring her followers to add “your name if you agree: Affordable health care is a basic human right,” accompanied by a link to her campaign website. The tweet included a photo of her hugging President Obama in the White House Situation Room after the law passed Congress in 2010.

 

 

The court decided in a 6-3 ruling Thursday to uphold the subsidies to 6.4 million people across roughly 34 states. Many on the left feared the the challenge, if it were successful, could take down the president’s signature healthcare law.

The ruling is likely to roil the Republican side of the presidential election as well, as conservative candidates look to stake out their opposition to the healthcare law.

Clinton later released a statement urging Republicans to end their attacks on the law.

“Now that the Supreme Court has once again re-affirmed the ACA as the law of the land, it’s time for the Republican attacks to end,” Clinton said in a statement. “It’s time to move on.”
