Supreme Court Could Hear Challenge To Fed Health Care Law

The entire Affordable Care Act was struck down by a Florida federal district court in January. But in an appeal at the 11th Circuit in Atlanta last month, only the mandate requiring individuals purchase health insurance was deemed unconstitutional. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said he’s confident the Court will decide to take the case. He added that everyone, both proponents and critics of the law, should support its hearing before the Supreme Court as a way to clarify the law’s standing.

“This is really a requirement to see whether the constitutionality of it is sufficient to go forward,” Zoeller said.

Zoeller said if the Court takes the case, a ruling could be decided by next year.
