Supreme Court will hear health care case this term

By JESSE J. HOLLAND

WASHINGTON, DC (AP) — The Supreme Court says it will hear arguments over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, setting up an election-year showdown over the White House’s main domestic policy achievement.

The justices on Monday revealed they would take the case. That means arguments could come in March, allowing plenty of time for a decision in late June, just over four months before Election Day.

The health care case could be the high court’s most significant and political undertaking since the 5-4 decision in Bush v. Gore nearly 11 years ago. That ruling effectively sealed George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential election victory.

Republicans have called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unconstitutional since before Obama signed it into law in March 2010. But federal appeals courts have been split on their assessment.
