Getting ready for the Supreme Court’s big Obamacare decisionJune 25th, 2012 at 9:00 am by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
Heads up – the U.S. Supreme Court could decide as soon as today whether all or part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s health care law, is unconstitutional.
If you want to understand what Obamacare does and what the justices are considering, read Sarah Kliff’s Wonkblog overview. If you want to watch today’s decisions as they come in, follow SCOTUSblog’s live blog this morning.
And if you want coverage on the Affordable Care Act and Rhode Island – which has moved faster than most other states to implement the law – here are some highlights from the Nesi’s Notes archive:
- Health insurance exchanges a bipartisan affair in Rhode Island (April 1, 2011)
- How John Chafee paved the way for ‘Obamacare’ in the 1990s (March 23, 2011)
- Talking health care reform with Lieutenant Governor Roberts (Sept. 23, 2010)
Update: No health care decision today (though there were some other big ones). NYT’s Jeff Zeleny says the Obamacare ruling is “likely Thursday.”
