the obama administration is appealing to the supreme court to declare the health care law constitutional.... peter barnes tells us when we can expect the court's final decisi. decision. the obama administration has asked the supreme court to declare health care reform constitutional. a key provision in the law is the individual mandate... the requirement that everyone get health insurance or pay a penalty. in august, a federal appeals court in atlanta declared that requirement unconstitutional. some small business advocates cheered the ruling. harned says: "there is much more bad than good for small business in this law and as the earlier reports showed they are very disturbed by the
fact that the individual mandate in it requiring all of us to buy health insurance or pay a fine starting in 2014 really opens the doors to unlimited congressional power over all of our lives and purchasing decisions going forward. but other courts have sided with the administration on the legality of health care reform. so it appealed to the supreme court to settle the matter. the justice department says time is of the essence because all of the major players in health care are gearing up for the changes ... and need certainty as soon as possible to move forward with their plans and implementation. carney says: "not only have lower courts upheld it's constitutionality, but the fact of the individual mandates being both constitutional and wise policy is an opinion shared across the ideological spectrum. the administration hopes the supreme court will issue its decision by next june. that's it for this edition of the small business report. i'm peter barnes, fox business
