The wait continues for the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on the federal health overhaul. Justices released opinions Monday in other cases but did not say how they will decide the Florida-led challenge to President Obama’s signature health law, explains the News Service of Florida. Justices, who are in the final week of the annual Supreme Court term, are now expected to issue a ruling on health care Thursday.
Florida, joined by other states, filed a constitutional challenge in 2010 to the law known as the “Affordable Care Act.” Justices heard arguments earlier this year about whether a key part of the law, which would require most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty, violates the U.S. Constitution. Also, Florida and other states are targeting part of the law that would expand eligibility for the Medicaid program.
