Supreme Court upholds health care law

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the Supreme Court's decision to uphold his health care overhaul is a ``victory for people all over the country'' and will make their lives more secure.
Obama says the decision upholds the fundamental principle that in America no one should fall into financial ruin because of an illness.
The president says the decision means that people with pre-existing medical conditions will not be discriminated against and people will be able to afford quality health care.
The nation's highest court on Thursday upheld the individual insurance requirement at the center of the president's overhaul.
Polling has suggested that most Americans oppose the law and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney vowed again after the ruling to seek its repeal.
