This Oct. 3, 2014 photo shows the Supreme Court in Washington, Friday, Oct. 3, 2014. The Supreme Court agreed Friday, Nov. 7, 2014, to hear a new challenge to President Barack Obama's health care law that threatens subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people afford their health insurance premiums. The justices said they will review a unanimous federal appeals court ruling that upheld Internal Revenue Service regulations that allow health-insurance tax credits under the Affordable Care Act for consumers in all 50 states. Opponents argue that most of the subsidies are illegal. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

Visitors line up to enter the Supreme Court in Washington, Tuesday, Oct. 14, 2014, as the justices begin the second week of the new term. The landscape has changed very quickly for gay marriage in the U.S. Last week, the Supreme Court declined to hear appeals from several states seeking to retain their bans on same-sex marriage. The Oct. 6 move effectively legalized gay marriage in about 30 states and triggered a flurry of rulings and confusion in lower courts across the nation. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

FILE - This Jan. 28, 2014 file photo shows Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts in the House chamber on Capitol Hill waiting for the President's State of the Union address to begin. Roberts is beginning his 10th year at the head of the Supreme Court, and the fifth with the same lineup of justices. He has been part of a five-justice conservative majority that has rolled back campaign finance limits, upheld abortion restrictions and been generally skeptical of the consideration of race in public life. But his court has taken a different path in cases involving gay and lesbian Americans, despite the chief justice's opposition most of the time. (AP Photo/Larry Downing, Pool)
