Republican leaders are preparing to take action against President Barack Obama's health care law, regardless of how the Supreme Court rules in its much anticipated ruling Thursday.
House Republicans held a news conference on Capitol Hill Wednesday, announcing plans to repeal what's left of the law if the high court fails to strike the legislation down entirely.
"The Obamacare bill was a mistake. We would like to see the kind of health care that will allow patients to make decisions, not bureaucrats here in Washington," Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., said.
"Obamacare is driving up the cost of health care and making it harder for small businesses to hire new workers," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, added.
President Obama's health care law requiring all Americans to have medical coverage has faced an uphill battle since he signed it into law.
Regardless of Thursday's ruling, the health care debate isn't over.
Religious groups are also protesting abortion and birth control mandates later added to the legislation.
