The U.S. Supreme Court will decide once and for all whether requiring Americans to buy health insurance is constitutional or not. Opponents argue it’s akin to the U.S. government demanding that Americans buy domestic cars to shore up Detroit. The question is, even if the mandates are declared illegal, what does that mean for the many other provisions in Obamacare? Are they going to throw the baby out with the bathwater? The case will likely be heard sometime in the middle of 2012, which could create high drama, not just for the nation’s highest court, but as the race for the Presidency, the nation’s highest office, unfolds. Obama’s former solicitor general Elana Kagan, who he nominated to the court, may not even be able to rule on the decision after a series of emails were released showing she is impartial on the issue.
