With the health care act upheld, both Democrats and Republicans will be in the spotlight.

The Affordable Care Act was President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement, and will likely make it a key aspect of his re-election platform. Republican lawmakers and Mitt Romney have vowed to repeal it.

Christina Bellantoni, politics editor at PBS NewsHour, joins the show to discuss the potential political fallout from the expected Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act.
