President Barack Obama’s health care revamp, a law that touches core political divisions in the United States and a subject vital to the Republican bid to deny him a second term, goes before the Supreme Court on Monday for the first of three days of hearings that is expected to have a major impact on the life of virtually every American.
Since Obama signed the highly contentious legislation into law two years ago, 26 states have confronted the legality of the overhaul, the largest expansion in the nation’s social safety net in more than four decades.
The fight against the law, intended at expanding health insurance to more than 30 million Americans, has further encouraged deep divisions in the country. Republicans battling for the nomination to challenge Obama in the November election have promised to revoke the health care overhaul, provided the conservative-dominated Supreme Court doesn’t strike it down in a decision that is expected in June.
Until the health care law, the United States was the only major developed country without a national health care system.
Republicans are leading the fight to defunct the law either through the court or through congressional repeal. They hold that the worst fears about what they scathingly call “Obamacare” already have come to pass in the form of higher costs and regulations, claims that the law’s supporters dispute.
