Live blog will likely scoop Obamacare court decision

The Supreme Court of the United States ends it term on June 28, and will issue one of the most anticipated decisions in decades. The court will publish its opinion on the constitutionality of President Obama's signature policy initiative: the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, along with two other rulings.

At the SCOTUSblog—SCOTUS stands for Supreme Court of the United States— there is ongoing analysis of what the Supreme Court might say in the forthcoming decision. On June 26, the blog received more than 500,000 hits when the court released its findings on a law passed in the Arizona state legislature on immigration. It is likely that the SCOTUSblog will be the first outlet to break the news on Obamacare.

Presidential spokesman Jay Carney said on June 27 that President Obama will himself be monitoring the conversation on SCOTUSblog to learn about the court's ruling in this case. Observers contend that a finding by the court that Obamacare is indeed unconstitutional will be a serious blow to the prestige of President Obama and his chances for re-election. The Supreme Court will issue its opinions starting at 10 a.m. ET, with the health care ruling probably starting around 10:15 a.m.
