WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has finished hearing the first day of arguments on the challenge to President Barack Obama's historic health care overhaul.
Demonstrators gathered outside the courthouse to voice their opinions for and against the law.
“We are rich and prosperous nation, it is only morally right that a minimum level of health care should be a right and not a function of income or which job you have,” said Dr. Mark Kramer.
“It's created such a high level of uncertainty, reduced the confidence of the American people, the Supreme Court has to do the right thing and rule this unconstitutional,” said Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin.
The court will hear two more days of challenges to the law, signed by Obama in 2010.
Tomorrow one of the key arguments will be presented, against the provision requiring people to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.
The ruling is expected in June.
