The New York Times:

The ruling was a loss for Mitt Romney, who was left fumbling for a cogent response, and will leave him even more vulnerable to attempts by Mr. Obama to remind Americans that, when he was governor of Massachusetts, he championed a health care reform that looks very much like Mr. Obama’s law. Mr. Romney’s argument, that his reform was right for one state but Washington does not have the power to impose it on the other 49, was refuted by the Supreme Court ruling.
From: A Moderate Ruling With Risks Ahead

The Wall Street Journal:

The presumptive GOP nominee may have thought he could run solely on the economy, but now ObamaCare must be central to his campaign. He is at a disadvantage.

Infamous Supreme Court rulings through history —
Scott v. Sandford (1857): Court rules that American slaves (and their descendants) are neither U.S. citizens nor protected by the Constitution.
Justice McLean dissenting:

Being born under our Constitution and laws, no naturalization is required, as one of foreign birth, to make him a citizen. The most general and appropriate definition of the term citizen is “a freeman.”

Plessy v. Ferguson (1896): Court rules that laws mandating racial segregation in public facilities are legal.
Justice Harlan, dissenting:

I deny that any legislative body or judicial tribunal may have regard to the race of citizens when the civil rights of those citizens are involved. Indeed, such legislation as that here in question is inconsistent not only with that equality of rights which pertains to citizenship, National and State, but with the personal liberty enjoyed by everyone within the United States.

Olmstead v. United States (1928): Court rules that evidence obtained without a warrant from private telephone conversations is admissible.
Justice Brandeis, dissenting:

The right to be let alone — the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by civilized men. To protect that right, every unjustifiable intrusion by the Government upon the privacy of the individual, whatever the means employed, must be deemed a violation.

National Federation of Independent Business et al. v. Sebelius (2012): Court rules that the federal government can command citizens to purchase a private good.
Justice Scalia, Justice Kennedy, Justice Thomas, and Justice Alito, dissenting:

The values that should have determined our course today are caution, minimalism, and the understanding that the Federal Government is one of limited powers. But the Court’s ruling undermines those values.
