Sen. Mike Lee says SCOTUS could strike down mandate, argues justices don't make decisions based on personal politics

In just a few short minutes from this writing, the U.S. Supreme Court will hand down a ruling on the Affordable Care Act, a much-criticized health care reform bill that could be called the Obama Administration's signature piece of legislation. The decision could change the entire frame of health care in this country.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), a former law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, talks with Soledad on "Starting Point" this morning on the possible rulings that could come today. He predicts that the Supreme Court will likely strike down the individual mandate in the health care bill. He also responds to a poll of Americans on if they feel Supreme Court justices are biased.
