Obama Administration Faces Tough Decision On Healthcare Case.

The Los Angeles Times (9/25, Savage) reported that “Obama Administration lawyers face a decision by Monday that carries a high political risk and will probably determine whether the Supreme Court decides on the constitutionality of the healthcare law before next year’s presidential election.” The Times said that the “Justice Department could ask the full US 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to reconsider a 2-1 decision in August that declared” Obama’s healthcare mandate unconstitutional. However “seeking the full court review could take weeks, or even months, and probably push back a Supreme Court ruling until 2013.” The other choice would be to “opt to skip the full review in the lower court and appeal directly to the Supreme Court this fall” which would “probably lead to a constitutional ruling on President Obama’s healthcare law by next summer.”
