Obama Health Remarks Draw Order for U.S. View on Court

A federal appeals court hearing a challenge to part of the 2010 health-care law ordered President Barack Obama’s administration to give its view on whether the U.S. Supreme Court can strike down laws it considers unconstitutional.

Obama, a Democrat, said April 2 that it would amount to “judicial activism” for the Supreme Court to throw out the statute. The high court last week heard three days of arguments on challenges to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which requires Americans to obtain health insurance.
