It's seen as a victory for a lot of people especially for those who have been without healthcare for quite some time.
" It's a struggle," said Kendra McGowan.
For last 5 years Kendra Mcgowan hasn't had health insurance, and hearing the news today made her sigh with relief.
" Yes, I'm very excited about this," McGowan said.
The Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act is a sign to many Americans that things are headed in the right direction.
" We've been going the wrong direction for a long time," said Clyde Austin.
Some people say the decision goes beyond poliitics and addresses basic human rights.
" Nobody should go without healthcare or food. We need to take care of each other. We're a community, it's a social contract," said Austin.
While some strongly support the health care law, others believe its part of a calculated political agenda.
Religious groups in the Central Valley are deeply dissappointed by the Supreme Court's ruling.
"They're able to force and blackmail people into doing what they want them to do. When does it end?" said Jonathan Keller.
They feel the healthcare law would force religious organizations to pay for services that go against their faith.
" Contraceptives and day after pill, and other meds that violate consciousness of people of faith," said Phil Kell.
