U.S. Supreme Court

President Obama won’t get any advance notice before the U.S. Supreme Court rules today on his administration’s health care law.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Wednesday that Obama will be in Carney’s office when the decision is released, and the president will learn of the opinion from the media, according to Reuters and the Wall Street Journal blog Washington Wire.

“We turn on televisions and radios and computers, and watch SCOTUSblog,” Carney said. “I think anybody who covers the Supreme Court knows that it’s pretty airtight. And it is perhaps anachronistic, or not, but that’s a fact. And so, we all will await the decision and learn of it at the same time that you do.”
