US Supreme Court to Hear Challenge to ObamaCare

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The US Supreme Court Monday agreed to hear arguments on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s landmark health care reform, under fire from rival Republicans ahead of next year’s elections.

The nation’s nine top justices will “likely” hear the case in March, a court spokesman said, and are expected to issue a ruling by June in a judgment likely to reverberate before the November 2012 presidential elections.

The court said they would consider a request by the Obama administration to declare the measure constitutional, as well as two cases challenging the law, including one case presented by 26 US states and small businesses that want strike down the totality of the reform.

Opponents say the most controversial element of the law — mandating that people buy health insurance or face a tax — violates individual rights as set out under the US Constitution.
