Election-year ruling looms for health overhaul
Facing likely election-year ruling, Obama appeals health overhaul setback to Supreme Court
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' President Barack Obama's landmark health care overhaul appears headed for a Supreme Court ruling as the presidential election season is hitting full stride in the coming year.

Under normal court procedures, the case could be resolved by June 2012.
