The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the health reform laws this week. Meaning, that this is a very important week for both the government and the American people. There are basically three scenarios – the whole law is thrown out, only part of the law is thrown out or everything is upheld. Most likely, many think that only part of the law will be thrown out, the individual mandate. This has been the most controversial part of the health reform laws that says everyone must have health insurance by 2014 or face a fine.
Many Americans believe that the government overreached their boundaries by trying to impose this regulation. The main issue is that many can not afford health insurance. And, many feel that they are healthy and do not need to have health insurance. The ruling will have resistance either way it is ruled. If the law is thrown out, then the Democrats will push to repeal the decision, and vice versa. As we wait to see what there decision will be, the election also waits in the balance and the ruling may have significant future implications.
