North Carolina Reacts To The Supreme Court Ruling On Health Reform

The President's health care law survived a crucial test in the Supreme Court today. But, experts say the political fight isn't finished.

Asma Khalid: The Supreme Court voted 5-to-4 to uphold most of the Affordable Care Act. That surprised Karen Duqette. She works at the Republican-leaning Civitas Institute.

Karen Duqette: I think this decision is going to have a major impact on rallying conservatives.

Jonathan Oberlander agrees. He's a professor of health policy at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill

Jonathan Oberlander: This decision ensures that health reform is going to play a more prominent role in the presidential election. And what that means for North Carolina since we're a battleground state we're going to see plenty of ads back and forth by the two parties about health care.

So, rather than putting a stop to the partisan bickering, it sounds like it's on to the next battle, November 6.
