A UNO political scientist says the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the so-called Affordable Care Act is a legal victory for President Obama’s administration.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of the health care law. Chief Justice John Roberts joined in the majority supporting the law. UNO political science professor Carson Holloway says he was surprised that Chief Justice Roberts was the deciding vote.
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule by the end of June on President Obama’s health care overhaul law.
Justices heard three days of arguments from the U.S. Solicitor General and from Attorneys General who sued to have the health care law thrown out. 26 states, including Nebraska, are part of the lawsuit.
