Supreme Court justices voice their opinions in the health care ruling
»9 items «
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with a 5-4 decision, saying the individual mandate was the equivalent of a tax and it was not its role to strike down imposition of a tax. That means that individuals will be required to buy health insurance or face financial penalties. The majority held that the law's Medicaid expansion is constitutional, but said only the expansion money could be withheld from states that did not want to participate; the federal government could not withhold other Medicaid funding.
