Supreme Court takes up challenge to health care reform

The Supreme court has agreed to decide the constitutionality of the health care reform law of Barack Obama. The high court agrees to hear two major questions: whether the law's key provision is unconstitutional, and if so, whether the entire law must be eliminated.

The major issue will decide if the "individual mandate" section - which requires nearly all Americans to buy health insurance in 2014 or face financial penalties --is an improper exercise of federal authority.

My feeling is the odds are in Obama administrations favor that it will not be struck down. Legal analysts say this is one of the toughest challenges the high court faces in a decade.

Stay tuned.
