The Supreme Court upheld Thursday Barack Obama's reforms to extend health insurance to another 32 million Americans in a major victory for the president in the heat of a tight re-election contest. Obama said the ruling, which prescribes how health care will be delivered in the United States for decades to come, went beyond polarized politics and urged a divided America to get behind a law that was in the interests of all. "Whatever the politics, today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives are more secure because of this law and the Supreme Court's decision to uphold it," he said.
