Court Upholds Obamacare, Supreme Court To Begin Discussion

A District of Columbia Federal Court of Appeals upheld President Barack Obama’s healthcare law on Tuesday as Constitutional, setting the stage for a probable Supreme Court fight regarding the law.

The court, according to The Associated Press, agreed to dismiss a Christian legal group’s lawsuit that said the healthcare law was unConstitutional and in violation of religious freedom.

The lawsuit was one of many challenging Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and appellate courts throughout the Nation have ruled both in favor of and against the act, further ensuring that the issue will eventually reach the Supreme Court.

On Oct. 26, SCOTUSblog reported that the Supreme Court will most likely take its first look at Obamacare challenges at its conference this Thursday.

The court is scheduled to discuss six petitions against Obamacare, including:

The initial conversations will give Supreme Court Justices a chance to decide which cases and whose arguments they will hear before ruling on healthcare reform. An actual ruling on the law, most experts say, will not take place until next year. Because of the numerous contradictory rulings from lower courts regarding the individual insurance mandate, the Court is expected to focus heavily on that particular issue in discussions about the law in its entirety.
