Justices say health care law’s key provision requiring Americans to have insurance passes constitutional test.
By Melanie Nathan, June 28, 2012.
In a 5-4 decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the individual mandate in President Barack Obama’s health care law is constitutional. The mandate required individuals to purchase health care coverage or face fines beginning in 2014. Supporters had insisted that the mandate was essential for controlling health care costs, a key goal of the law.
During this election year, this win is of critical importance for President Obama and the United State’s future.
Now let us move forward and raise enough money to ensure that we keep our equality President in the White House. A Romney presidency is simply not an option for LGBT Americans.
