A little over a week removed from the Miami Heat's NBA Finals victory against OKC (and just four days after taking to the streets of Downtown to watch D-Wade drive by on a double-decker bus), the celebration continues.
Only this time, it's not a sports team we're praising; it's the Supreme Court. "The Affordable Care Act's requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in yesterday's landmark ruling. "Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness."
In other words, "Obamacare" is legal, yo. Rejoice by checking out one of these top ten music-related things to do in Miami this weekend.
