Health care law upheld
Depending who you spoke to in Kane County on Thursday, the Supreme Court got it right in upholding President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, or it made the wrong call.
The justices, voting 5-4, said Congress has the power to make Americans carry insurance or pay a penalty. That requirement is at the center of the law, which also forces insurers to cover people with pre-existing health conditions. The court limited the law's extension of the Medicaid program for the poor by saying the federal government can't threaten to withhold existing money from states that don't fully comply.
Marcia Boyce, owner of Boyce Body Werks, an auto body repair shop with locations in Batavia and Naperville, said she was disappointed with the ruling.
