WOODBURY - The Supreme Court dove into the health care debate today, as justices began hearing arguments on the legality of President Barack Obama's heath care overhaul. Protesters for and against the Affordable Care Act marched outside the Supreme Court building as the hearing got under way. The main focus of several lawsuits over the act is the requirement that every American purchase medical coverage by the year 2014 or face a financial penalty. The court will hear arguments over the next three days and a decision is expected by late June.
