The Supreme Court was sharply divided today in the latest challenge to President Barack Obama's health insurance overhaul, this time over the tax subsidies that make insurance affordable for millions of Americans. The justices are trying to determine whether the law makes people in all 50 states eligible for federal tax subsidies to cut the cost of insurance premiums, or if it limits tax credits to people who live in states that created their own health insurance marketplaces. According to the Associated Press, the same liberal-conservative divide that characterized earlier cases was evident in the nearly 90 minutes of back-and-forth questioning. A decision is expected by late June.
