Justices say health care law's key provision requiring Americans to have insurance passes constitutional test.
The Supreme Court upheld the health care law’s individual mandate Thursday, ruling that Congress did not overstep its power by requiring nearly all Americans to buy health insurance.
Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the court’s four liberal justices in the ruling, which says Congress had the authority for the mandate under Congress’s taxing power.
The ruling is a surprise victory for the Obama administration, which faced tough questions from the court during the oral arguments in March.
This lays the groundwork for universal healthcare law by grandfathering in requirements so that all Americans are covered.
Bill O'Really? said he'd apologize "for being an idiot" if Individual Mandate was upheld.
Rush Limbaugh said he'd move to Costa Rica (where they have socialized medicine) if the law passed Congress. He's still here.
