Florida Health Care Law Challenge to Supreme Court
The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it has agreed to consider Florida’s challenge to the Obama administration’s landmark health reform law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
The decision sets the stage for a ruling that could be as controversial and history-changing as the 2000 halt to Florida vote recounts, a decision that put then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush into the White House.
Because the Supreme Court’s hearing is likely to be held in March, a decision could be issued in June, before the court’s summer recess. And so at the height of the presidential campaign season, just before both parties’ conventions, Florida seems destined to again lead the nation into controversy.
