Posted 3:27 PM 6/25/2012 : Supreme Court to decide the fate of 'Obamacare'

"If we win on the individual mandate, Obamacare in totality will fall," said Greg Abbott, Texas Attorney General.

Mitt Romney benefits either way, because he's vowed to dismantle the health care law.
But for President Obama, the health care law is his signature achievement and, perhaps, his legacy.
