Court asks for Obama's stance on Healthy San Francisco
The U.S. Supreme Court delayed action on employer fees in San Francisco's healthcare program and instead sought advice from the Obama administration. The Bush administration had urged two federal courts to overturn the city law, which requires companies with more than 20 employees to provide health insurance benefits or pay fees that cover the employees' healthcare at city hospitals and clinics. In February, President Obama generally praised San Francisco's program, which the city calls Healthy San Francisco, in a White House speech before an audience of mayors.
