Retired Justice Stevens urges high court not to delay on health care
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — Retired Justice John Paul Stevens says the U.S. Supreme Court should settle the legal debate over the health care overhaul promptly and not push the case back beyond the 2012 presidential election.
Justice Stevens said in an Associated Press interview that the election makes it more important for the court to rule sooner rather than later. He said voters will be better informed “if they know the answer” to the question of whether the law is constitutional.
Justice Stevens, 91, retired from the court last year. He said his former colleagues would not be affected by the potential impact of their decision on the re-election chances of President Obama.
One federal appeals court has struck down a key portion of the law, while another has upheld it.
