This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its much anticipated ruling regarding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA). The Court upheld the constitutionality of ACA and the majority of its provisions. In a 5-4 decision written by Chief Justice Roberts and joined by Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Kagan, and Sotomayor, the Court upheld the individual mandate as a valid exercise of Congress's power to impose taxes, while rejecting the administration's primary argument that it was a valid exercise of the Commerce Clause power.
KMBZ radio interviewed Senior Policy Advisor Julius Hobson about what the decision means for the presidential race in 2012.
