The U.S. Supreme Court will rule Thursday whether all or parts of the Affordable Health Care Act the Obama Administration designed are constitutional. Republicans have vowed since the beginning to repeal the law Congress passed in 2009, largely because it mandates that all Americans participate and the government would be the overseer.

In Wisconsin, Gov. Walker has stopped the creation of an insurance exchange as the law requires states to do by 2014. He and other Republican leaders say they want to know first, if the court will uphold the law and then, whether President Obama will win re-election.

Several facets of the act have already been enacted, according to Bruce Speight, director of WISPRIG - the Wisconsin Public Interest Group or WISPIRG. It favors reform.
