It was the kind of decision that brought angst to one side and joy to the other. There isn’t much room in the middle, when it comes to the Affordable Care Act Supreme Court ruling, so it is not a surprise that both sides had a different perspective on what comes next.

Rep. Eric Cantor made it clear this will be the decision that could decide the election. 

“President Obama staked his presidency on this legislation,” he said. He then challenged his supporters to get use the ruling to run to the ballot box.

“I think it is very important for folks to engage in this debate,” said Cantor.  “And know that the decision we make in November will have a very personal impact on every American.”

Extended clips from Rep. Cantor can be found below:

Meanwhile, Democratic Sen. Mark Warner couldn’t have had a more different take. Simply described in two words:

“Game Over”.

Warner said the time for partisan bickering over the health care law has passed. He believes people care more about the economy and debt.

“Even if they don’t like the health care law,” Warner said.  “They want to know how am I going to find a better job, when is this economy going to grow?”

You can see Warner’s full interview below:
