“Courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, which is critical to a unfastened society.

“This is the No. 1 issue that the American people be fond of about.

The Supreme Court is set to decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) after the election, when it learn yet another challenge to the Obama administration’s landmark legislative achievement.
