The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of the sweeping health care law championed by President Barack Obama, upholding its central tenets. The law, which mandates that all U.S. citizens have health insurance by 2014 -- among other reforms -- remains highly controversial. Spiralling health-care costs and cumbersome regulations plague the industry, which accounts for about 20 percent of the U.S. economy, making it a flashpoint issue during budgeting debates.
