Supreme Court to Take Up Health Care

"Obamacare" is going to the Supreme Court. The justices announced on Monday that they would take up three separate cases arguing the constitutionality of President Obama’s controversial reform law, part of which mandates that individuals purchase health insurance from the market. The court will hold oral arguments sometime in the spring, most likely in March. It is expected to issue a decision by the end of its current term, which is normally in late June—and which next year will fall in the middle of the presidential campaign.
