The US Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, proposed by the Obama administration, in its provision that all Americans are required to have health insurance by 2014.
The "Obamacare", as the health care law is often dubbed, was passed by the Congress in March 2010 and signed by President Obama later that month.
The supporters of the law claimed it would reduce health care costs, expand coverage and protect Americans. The critics, on the other hand, said the law gave the government too much power over what should, in their opinion, be a personal decision.
Due to this division, the US highest court went through three days of politically charged hearings in March 2012.
The US Supreme Court left the decision on Obama's health care act as the last ruling for the year. As David Cole, a Georgetown University constitutional law professor explained ",It's also the most difficult case, the most important case, so they [the judges] may want the extra few days to make sure that they're happy with their written opinions."
If the law is ruled constitutional, every Americans will have to obtain a health insurance by 2014 or pay a fine.
