In Washington, anticipation is mounting for the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of the healthcare reform law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
The law has inspired both political and legal battles from the moment President Barack Obama signed it into law more than two years ago. It has been challenged by 26 states which contend the so-called individual mandate is unconstitutional. In March, the Supreme Court heard six hours of oral argument regarding the law. Although the high court will not say when it will rule on the case, published reports suggest it could happen in the next two weeks.
