U.S. Supreme Court Asked to Overturn Obama Health-Care Law

A Christian legal group asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn President Barack Obama’s health-care law, filing an appeal that would let the justices take up the case later this year.

The Thomas More Law Center today said it had asked the justices to review a 2-1 federal appeals court decision that upheld the law last month. The group, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, contends Congress exceeded its constitutional power by requiring Americans to either obtain insurance or pay a fine.

The petition is the first challenge to the law to reach the Supreme Court under its normal procedures. In April, the justices refused to consider the law on a fast-track basis, rejecting Virginia’s bid to bypass the appeals court stage in its suit.

Last month’s ruling by the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was the first appeals court decision to address the law’s constitutionality. Three other appeals courts are still considering challenges, including one being pressed by 26 states.

The 2010 law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is intended to create the first near-universal U.S. health-care coverage program.
