Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Reform!

The Supreme Court upheld the Health Care Reform Act in its entirety in a close 5-4 decision, with the majority opinion authored by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts. Justice Ginsburg wrote her own concurring opinion and Justices Scalia and Thomas wrote lengthy dissents.  The decision upholds the individual mandate for universal health insurance, and all of the tax increases that are intended to pay for health care reform, most of which are scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2013.  For an insightful article on the decision, please see Mike Sacks' column in today's The Huffington Post at  More to come on this important development in the next few days.
