Health Care Decision Looms

The Supreme Court may hand down its ruling as soon as Monday on President Obama’s signature health-care law. The much-anticipated ruling is sure to continue to draw debate, as both Mitt Romney and Obama defined it as a key election-year issue in the lead-up to the decision. The Affordable Care Act became one of the divisive political issues in the country after it was signed into law in March 2010. One of the court’s key considerations will be on whether the law’s controversial individual mandate should be treated as a tax or a regulation of commerce.
