Supreme Court opinion on Obama’s healthcare law

The U.S. Su­preme Court up­held the con­sti­tu­tion­al­ity of Pres­id­ent Obama’s health­care law Thursday, rul­ing the gov­ern­ment may im­pose tax pen­al­ties on per­sons who do not have health in­sur­ance.

The court’s long-awaited rul­ing re­jec­ted a broad leg­al at­tack on the Pa­tient Pro­tec­tion and Af­ford­able Care Act brought by Re­pub­lic­an state of­fi­cials and the Na­tion­al Fed­er­a­tion of In­de­pend­ent Busi­ness.
