VOA was there as one of the most closely-watched U.S. Supreme Court cases in years began Monday with oral arguments in a legal challenge to President Barack Obama’s health care law – the signature achievement of his presidency so far.

Analysts say the outcome of the case likely will affect this year’s presidential election as well as the scope and cost of health care coverage in the United States for decades to come.
