Politicians, Advertisers Capitalize on Healthcare Ruling

As tweets fly, everyone from Obama to tech companies look to advertise

Today in Washington, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, known by many as Obamacare, ruling to uphold President Barack Obama's individual healthcare mandate. Well before the court offered an opinion, the case was heralded as one of the biggest court decisions in decades and a focal point in an already intense election year. The Washington media and social echo chamber, known nowadays for their intense scrutiny on even the most paltry of issues, was geared up for wall-to-wall coverage of the landmark case, and as always, advertisers salivated over the opportunity to capitalize on the media frenzy.
