Poll: Healthcare Mandate Upheld

Anyone who does not have it by 2014 will pay a penalty on their 2015 taxes.

Poll: Healthcare Mandate Upheld

In a 5-4 decision, the US Supreme Court upheld the healthcare mandate requiring most people to have health insurance by 2014, CBS reports.

The upheld provisions include the individual mandate a provision allowing children to stay on their parents' healthcare until they're 26.

Who voted for what:

Pro: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and swing-vote Chief Justice John Roberts.

Dissent: Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas and Alito.
