Social Issues Breaking News: Supreme Court Could Make History on Same-Sex Marriage, or Not

Wochit 1:17 mins

The court is set to rule on two cases involving the issue, but procedural wrinkles make it possible the decisions might be inconclusive. Ohio's Republican governor, John Kasich, is no fan of President Barack Obama's health reform law. But he has become an unlikely proponent of one element of Obamacare - expansion of Medicaid healthcare coverage for the poor - and he has a warning for his fellow party members about the moral consequences of blocking it. "When you die and get to the meeting with St. Peter, he's probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small, but he's going to ask you what you did for the poor. President Obama says he's "deeply disappointed" with the decision to strike down a provision of the Voting Rights Act, and called on Congress to revamp the law. The ruling "upsets decades of well-established practices that help make sure voting is fair, especially in places where voting discrimination has been historically prevalent," said the nation's first African-American president in a written statement.
