Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) said the Supreme Court’s “frightening” ruling that upheld the Affordable Care as a tax is a “blow to our freedoms.” “What’s next?” Jindal asked, according to The Hill. He voiced concern for people who “refuse to eat tofu” or “refuse to drive a Chevy Volt” — even though the court ruled the individual mandate to buy health insurance was not constitutional under the Commerce Clause. Jindal said he expects opposition to the law to “escalate” before the presidential election and that Republican governors will not implement the law before November.
