Supreme Court on Health Care Reform: History in the Making

Today the Supreme Court announced they will make a ruling on whether or not health care reform is constitutional.  The arguments will be heard in February or March and a ruling will come in late June, just a few months before election time.  This is serious history in the making, people.

This follows the ruling from Florida and 25 other states where the appeals courts struck down the law (the only one of 4 cases).

Roughly speaking, the Supreme Court will decide on two main things: 1) if the individual mandate portion is constitutional and 2) whether the rest of the reform legislation should also be scrapped.

Stay tuned.

More detail can be read on CNN, NPR, Kaiser Health News, or NYTimes.
