    iReporters debate Supreme Court health care ruling

     

    Welcome to the very first head-to-head iReport Debate!

     

    The Supreme Court upheld the entirety Obama’s health care plan in a 5-4 decision on Thursday. We selected two iReporters from both sides of the issue – one who supports Obama’s plan and one who is against it -- to go head-to-head in a debate.

     

    iReporter Egberto Willies, a democrat from Kingwood, Texas, supports Obama’s plan. His wife has lupus and he fears that without this law, she would lose her insurance.

     

    And on the other side is iReporter Mark Ivy from Farmersburg, Indiana. He is disabled and on Medicare, but he opposes the plan. He predicts the law will increase the cost of coverage.

     

    We kicked off the debate with this question: Did the Supreme Court make the right decision?
