A supporter of the Affordable Care Act celebrates after the Supreme Court up held the law in the 6-3 vote in WashingtonBy James Oliphant WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Infuriated by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that kept President Barack Obama’s healthcare program intact, conservative activists and Republican presidential candidates vowed on Thursday to make the role of the high court a central issue in the 2016 presidential election. Conservative ire was trained particularly on Chief Justice John Roberts, who wrote the majority opinion that preserved the subsidy regime underpinning the Affordable Care Act, even though another Republican appointee, Justice Anthony Kennedy, also voted with the majority.

Bush, has voted with court conservatives on many landmark cases, including ones involving campaign-finance laws and voting rights.
