BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The US Supreme Court postponed a ruling today, on several hot button issues including President Obama's controversial national health care reform policy.
26 states including Louisiana filed a lawsuit saying the president's plan is unconstitutional.
Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon told members of the press club, monday. he'd like to see changes made to national healthcare reform laws to help individual policy holders.
Donelon says the court's decision will have a big effect on americans.
"I think it's a major expansion of government power for the congress to be able to require the individual to do something," said Commissioner Donelon. "It's one thing to say you can't do something. It's something else to say you must do something. "
The US Supreme Court is now expected to make those rulings later this week.
