Obama confident reform will survive legal scrutiny

Despite a recent reversal in a federal appeals court that almost certainly will send the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to the U.S. Supreme Court, President Barack Obama expressed confidence his healthcare reform plan ultimately will survive legal scrutiny, the Wall Street Journal law blog reports. Although some legal scholars say the Obama Administration will try to stall the Supreme Court from taking action before next year's presidential election, other experts say it could issue a decision as early as the spring of 2012.
