The central provision in question is the requirement that individuals buy health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a penalty.

Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) welcomes the court’s review. Kirk believes the healthcare legislation is unconstitutional. Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) stands behind the legislation but says he welcomes the court to look at it because with their decision, it will put the issue to rest.
