NPR’s Julie Rovner had the best opening line: “Who didn’t see this coming?”

To no one’s surprise, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide the Constitutionality of the sweeping health care reform bill passed last year. Rovner sums up the timing of oral arguments and the possible outcomes.

Following her report, be sure to scroll down to Scott Hensley’s round up of tweets of bipartisan support for the Supreme Court’s announcement.

Kaiser Health News includes analysis on the Supreme Court’s options and background on the challenges to the health care reform law so far.
