Obama’s healthcare plan in court: Supreme Court to decide its fate by late June

Obama’s much debated healthcare plan has been embroiled in controversies and objection by a majority of people, both government officials as well as informed citizens. The bill that mandates that everyone avails a health insurance by 2014 or pay penalty before claiming a refund hasn’t gone down well with a many. With 26 out of 50 states challenging the bill which is being proposed to be turned into a law by Republican Obama has faced opposition in all quarters including that of certain Republicans as well.

The law according to those Republican who have sought to steer clear of the current administration’s policies regarding health care have argued that the bill if turned into  law will financially burden not just individuals but also companies and businesses which have recently managed to find their own two feet and are stabilizing the tumultuous economy. Others who have been denoted as the challengers to Obama’s plan have vehemently argued against and opposed this plan. They argue that while financial burdening is one aspect of the health care bill, the repercussions it may have will impact not just the kind of food you prefer to eat but also various other lifestyle choices. The challengers are of the opinion that government should not dictate what product a citizen should buy and a citizen’s choices should not be, either directly or indirectly, be influenced or scrutinized by a government policy unless that drives a larger good for the entire country.

This idea being opposed by some has largely become a bone of contention among all levels of the institutional hierarchy. While some remain ambivalent, informed citizens are divided on the issue and most have already chosen sides as to which side they’d prefer to be on, yea or nay! With many turning up to rally for what they lovingly have termed Obamacare, the courtroom saw a packed turnout. Chanting slogans in support of the law which according to them sees them through tough times, many such supporters will now have to await the Court’s decision due in June.
