Obamacare's Fate Must Wait Until June
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The U.S. Supreme Court will start to hear oral arguments Monday of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which is now referred to by President Barack Obama as "Obamacare."
The six hours of hearings across three days won't produce any decisions, but will set the stage for a June showdown between the Obama administration and 26 states opposed to the massive overhaul of health insurance in the U.S.
A June decision would come some five months ahead of the 2012 election for president as opponents and supporters of the health insurance law are likely to use the Supreme Court's judgment as a central theme to November's political maelstrom.
