Campaigns Await Health Care Decision

Mark Halperin notes that both presidential campaigns "are girding for a message war following the Supreme Court's imminent decision on the President's health care law."

"If the law is struck down, Democrats plan to attack the Justices who vote in the majority, while Republicans will tell voters that a Romney Administration and a Republican Congress can best replace the unpopular, unconstitutional act... If the law is upheld, Romney will argue that only his election will halt the law's implementation, while the White House will seize a fresh opportunity to regain the political momentum (and sell the plan's more popular provisions)."

Meanwhile, ABC News has a handy flowchart showing the many ways in which the Supreme Court could rule.

The Week has four takeaways from "the ObamaCare poll the White House hates."
