Hot Topic: Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Law and the Individual Mandate.

The Supreme Court upheld the core of President Obama’s health care overhaul today ruling that the government can require all Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty. The decision is an affirmation of the president’s signature legislative achievement and should bring the country closer to providing coverage for all its residents.  Joel C. Cantor, director of Rutgers’ Center for State Health Policy and a professor of public policy at the Bloustein School, and Rutgers-Newark law professor Christina Ho, a former Clinton health policy expert, explain the significance of today’s decision, and what it could mean for individuals as well as the continuing debate over health care.
