WATCH: Robots explain King v. Burwell ‘Obamacare’ decision

For those scratching their heads after the crucial Affordable Care Act ruling from the Supreme Court of the United States yesterday, the folks at Courts Matter Colorado have put together the following explainer video, complete with battling robots:

You can read more about the ruling, and how Coloradans are responding, here.

Image a still from video. 


Edit note: The first version of this article mistakenly reported the organization that produced the video, a coalition known as Courts Matter Colorado.
