In the most recent legal ruling about the sweeping changes made to America’s insurance industry as a result of last year’s health reform law, US District Court Judge Gladys Kessler summed up what many believe is the inevitable truth: "It is highly likely that a decision by the United States Supreme Court will be required to resolve the constitutional and statutory issues which have been raised."

Kessler dismissed arguments that the mandate to purchase health insurance or pay a fine is Constitutional, in part, because "it is the least restrictive means of serving a compelling governmental interest." Specifically, "reforming the health care market by increasing coverage."
