If we have nothing but wins all the way up to the Supreme Court, there is an element of momentum … where the justices consider what has gone on before the case came to them.

 

Proponents argue that an appeals reversal could “undermine” provisions already being implement under the reform law, and that the secondary benefits could be “taken from the consumers”. Whatever the outcome, the case before the panel will more than likely be an expeditious affair, with a decision that probably will not stop there.
