Think Out Loud

What's Next for Health Care?

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act with a ruling released on Thursday. The court ruled very specifically on several points, including the constitutionality of the individual mandate — a provision that requires almost all Americans to purchase health insurance by 2014 or pay a penalty.

The ruling may set some new legal precedents.

It also offers an opportunity to revisit the now-infamous broccoli analogy.

What was your reaction when you heard the news about the Supreme Court ruling? What questions do you still have?
