The fireworks might start a little early this year

The Supreme Court should rule on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act any day and health care geeks like me are sitting on the edge of their seat and chewing off every fingernail waiting for a verdict.

A recent study indicates that more people will be disappointed by a decision that upholds health care reform than if the law is struck down.  Vegas has even gotten into the action and you can place bets on whether or not at least part of the law will be struck down.  The current odds favor at least a portion of the law being declared unconstitutional.

We won’t know the Supreme Court’s decision until its released which should occur by the end of this month so we won’t have to wait much longer.  The decision will not only have major implications for health care reform but it will have major implications on the upcoming presidential election.

The Supreme Court’s ruling will undoubtedly trigger strong partisan response and may become the pulpit by which a certain Democrat and a certain Republican positions himself to obtain the oval office. 

Typically fireworks are shot on the 4th of July but if the Supreme Court rules in the next week the fireworks might start a little early this year!
