Live Blog: The Health Care Ruling

If everything goes as expected, sometime between 10 a.m. ET and 10:30 a.m. ET we should get word about the Supreme Court’s most-anticipated decision of the year — on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act; the health care overhaul enacted in 2010.

Every U.S. news outlet, including NPR, has exhaustively previewed the decision, so we won’t go over that ground yet again, except to point to the post we did Wednesday called “Here’s How To Learn What The Supreme Court Says About Health Care.” It has background and links you may find useful.

We’ll use this post to cover the news as it comes in, so as decision time draws near be sure to hit your “refresh” button to see our latest updates.

NPR’s Ari Shapiro, Carrie Johnson and Nina Totenberg will be reporting on the NPR Newcast and Morning Edition once the decision is released, and on All Things Considered later in the day. At 7 p.m. ET, NPR will be broadcasting and streaming special coverage of the decision and what it means. Click here to find an NPR member station.
