Obamacare Headed to SCOTUS

According to the AP:

The Obama administration has decided not to ask a federal appeals court in Atlanta for further review of a ruling striking down the centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s sweeping health care overhaul.

The administration’s decision makes it more likely that the U.S. Supreme Court would hear a case on the health care overhaul in the court’s current term, and render its verdict on the law in the midst of the 2012 presidential election campaign.

See here for my previous post, arguing that this was the most prudent course of action.
