Will High Court Kill Healthcare Reform?

Although most people like to think that the Supreme Court is above playing politics, some healthcare experts see signs that it might be leaning towards trying to gut the national healthcare reform law. An article on says that the high court, dominated by a 5-4 conservative majority, has shown evidence of prejudicial behavior.

While some on the right have called for Justice Kagan to recuse herself – because she was “the Obama administration’s top courtroom lawyer when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was rammed through Congress over bitter Republican opposition” – the left are calling for Justices Thomas and Scalia to withdraw from the case before they were wined and dined by the law firm that will argue the case before the Supreme Court.

Others say that there is a high likelihood that the Court will opt to punt on the controversial case by claiming that federal law bars court challenges such as this one that are brought by the states.
