- Uphold the law in its entirety
- Strike it down entirely
- Strip away key provisions
- Delay a decision until after penalties for not having insurance are assessed
Predicting the outcome will be difficult, but one thing seems to be certain… the debate over the cost and delivery of health care in the United States will continue.
