Supreme Court Begins New Term

Monday, October 03, 2011

The Supreme Court begins a new term on Monday. Rather than ruling on the rights of corporations, as it has done in recent terms, the Court has criminal justice, free speech, and religion cases on the docket. Cases that are likely to grab headlines include when police can track cars with GPS devices, and whether sexual content may air on television at times when children may be watching. But one case may overshadow all of the others: President Obama's health care policy, which requires that most people buy health insurance by 2014.

Jeff Rosen, law professor at George Washington University, legal affairs editor for The New Republic, and author of "The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries That Defined America," talks about what to expect in the Court's new term.

The government already mandates purchase of "good for you" or good for greater good" services example car insurance, social security insurance and property tax so i don't see the upheaval over health insurance as it benefits all.

But for many hardworking families, affordable insurance can be hard to find. The new "Penny Health" is giving you more control over your family’s health care by expanding your options for health insurance and making them more affordable.
