Analysis: SCOTUS Decision And The 2012 Presidential Election 07:24


With four months to go before the November elections, the presidential candidates and their surrogates spent the weekend putting a political spin on the Supreme Court's controversial ruling last week that upheld President Obama's national health care law.

Democrats are calling it a validation of the president's first term initiative. But Republicans say it's a rallying cry for a "repeal" via the ballot box: vote out Obama and vote in Romney, who will repeal the law.

Our team of political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined WBUR's Morning Edition for a look at the impact of the ruling.

This program aired on July 2, 2012.
