News comes today from a largely conservative appeals court, no less. (Does the ruling in support of the law by a solid conservative justice on the appeals panel nix the idea that ideology is controlling the judges’ votes on this very politically-charged and polarizing issue?)

The Obama administration prevailed Wednesday in the first appellate review of the 2010 health care law as a three-judge panel from the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that it was constitutional for Congress to require that Americans buy health insurance.

All of this — as the SCOTUS prepares to consider this week whether to resolve conflicting rulings over the law’s requirement that all Americans buy health care insurance.
