With Obamacare, U.S. Supreme Court once again has the last word - or does it?

The United States Supreme Court is the most powerful judicial institution in the world. It has the last word on some of the most important and controversial issues that affect all Americans. Other courts around the world — such as the Israeli, British and German high courts — are beginning to assert comparable powers, but none has quite reached the level of SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States).
