On Thursday morning, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, the controversial overhaul of the health care system that President Obama signed into law in 2010. The decision is the most eagerly anticipated of the court's 2011-12 term, with the potential to shape the American health care system, the limits of federal power, and the presidential race in November. On Wednesday, both sides of the debate prepared for the fallout. The White House reiterated that it is "confident" the law will be upheld, but said it "would be ready for the decision when it comes down." Republicans pledged to repeal the entire law if the Supreme Court upholds it or leaves parts of it intact.
