Politics and everything that comes with it can usually seem confusing, nonsensical and contradictory. Depending on who you ask or what channel you watch, something is just as likely to kill you and everything you love as it is to save your life. Who’s actually telling the truth? That’s why I may be a political science major but would much rather focus on pop culture. Hollywood seems to be filled with less sharks than D.C.

Very few things seem to polarize people more lately than “Obamacare” or as it’s formally known, the Affordable Care Act (2010). Since 2009, Sarah Palin has promised that the ACA would lead to death panels (and she still does), but I’m 99.999% sure no one’s granny has been brought in front of any hooded bureaucrats yet. Well, yesterday the Supreme Court ruled in favor of healthcare reform in a 5-4 vote.

So if the Obamacare doesn’t mean death panels for grandma, what does it really mean for you and the rest of America?
