Reality Check: If the Affordable Care Act is "a tax," does that make the law invalid?

Posted: Updated:

It may be one of the most important rulings the U.S. Supreme Court has made in the last 100 years.

Is the Affordable Care Act constitutional?  Is it constitutional to have an individual mandate that requires Americans purchase insurance?

In a 5 to 4 vote the court ruled, yes.

Why did Chief Justice John Roberts rule the way he did?  What does the ruling mean?  And could this ruling actually mean that the Healthcare law is now invalid?
