| Supreme Court Upholds Healthcare Reform - Affordable Care Act
On Today, June, 28, 2012, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) handed down its highly anticipated decision upholding the 2010 healthcare reform act, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). This opinion addresses two cases and declined to rule on the matter of the individual mandate related to Federal Congressional powers over the states, i.e., the U.S. Constitution's Commerce and Supremacy Clauses, instead relying on a more narrow interpretation of Federal taxing authority. Touted as the one of the most significant SCOTUS decisions of this century, the Court's 5 to 4 ruling to uphold the Law will have repercussions throughout the U.S. healthcare delivery system and U.S. political arena.
