Supreme Court Justices uphold President's health care overhaul

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

The United States Supreme Court upheld President Obama's health care overhaul. It was a five to four decision by the court.

The justices ruled to uphold the individual mandate, meaning most Americans are required to have health insurance.

The court rejected arguments that Congress went too far in requiring Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty.

This is considered a victory for President Obama's campaign leading into a difficult election in November.
