It seems like the entire nation was holding its breath for today's Supreme Court ruling on health care. In a 5-4 decision, the Court upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The ruling will have implications for doctors, patients, politicians, legal scholars and states -- including California. After many months of intense speculation, we dig into the ruling.
