Before Justices Weigh In, Obama States His Case for Health Law
New York Times

Days before the Supreme Court hands down a ruling that could drastically undermine the Affordable Care Act, President Obama will deliver a speech on Tuesday extolling his health care law as a moral and practical victory that was decades in the making.

White House officials said that the speech’s timing was unrelated to the ruling, and that Mr. Obama was not seeking to sway the justices in a case that they probably decided shortly after it was argued in March. But the White House is clearly stating its case for the law before what could be a challenging period if the court invalidates subsidies for millions of people who signed up for coverage through HealthCare.gov.
