With a ruling by the Supreme Court on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s so-called “health care reform” law expected as early as today, both sides of the contentious debate are waiting, spin-sheets in hand, for a decision that could frame the election this year.
Both proponents and opponents have prepared contingency plans for dealing for what could either be a devastating blow to the plan or an endorsement of quasi-reform legislation that defined much of Obama’s first term.
Some legal watchers feel the high court will — at least — declare the mandate forcing purchase of health insurance invalid or perhaps scrap the entire law.
Stay tuned. It’s about to get interesting.
