    FILE - In this Jan. 25, 2012 file photo, the U.S. Supreme Court Building is seen in Washington. The health insurance industry is spending millions to carry out President Barack Obama?s health care overhaul, essentially betting that the law or major parts of it will survive Supreme Court scrutiny.

    FILE - In this photo taken in 1912 Theodore Roosevelt campaigns for President. Roosevelt champions national health insurance and tries to ride his progressive Bull Moose Party back to the White House. It's an idea ahead of its time; health insurance is a rarity and medical fees are relatively low because doctors cannot do much for most patients. But medical breakthroughs are beginning to revolutionize hospitals and drive up costs. Roosevelt loses the race. (AP Photo/Brown Brothers)

    This photo taken Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, in Chicago shows, David Zoltan, a field marketing coordinator for a public relations firm. As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, The Associated Press spoke with a variety of people to hear their experiences so far with the landmark legislation, whose major provisions don?t take effect until 2014. Reporters asked: How has the health care law affected your life? Zoltan lost a job and his health insurance during the recession. His diabetes sent him to the emergency room three times when he ran out of insulin during the two years he was uninsured. In 2010, he was one of the first to sign up in Illinois for a new health insurance program for people with pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act set aside $196 million for the state of Illinois to start the program. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)

    In this photo taken Feb. 24, 2012, Sharon Whalen, Publisher of the Illinois Times, is seen at work in Springfield, Ill. Whalen's small business, a weekly alternative newspaper, got a tax credit to help with cost of providing health care coverage to her employees. As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, The Associated Press spoke with a variety of people to hear their experiences so far with the landmark legislation, whose major provisions don?t take effect until 2014. Reporters asked: How has the health care law affected your life? As a co-owner of the Illinois Times, a weekly newspaper, Whalen wants to keep her small staff healthy. So she and her business partner provide them with health insurance and pay half the cost of premiums for their 10 employees. Keeping that employee benefit is getting more and more expensive. The company saw a spike in premium costs after one employee?s child had chronic health problems. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)

    FILE - In this file photo taken Jan. 20, 2011, Glenn Nishimura discusses his health insurance situation at a coffee shop in Little Rock, Ark. As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, The Associated Press spoke with a variety of people to hear their experiences so far with the landmark legislation, whose major provisions don?t take effect until 2014. Reporters asked: How has the health care law affected your life? Nishimura has been uninsured for nearly three years. He lost his health coverage after he left a full-time position with benefits in 2007, thinking he could land another good job. The recession destroyed that plan. He?s been denied coverage because of high blood pressure and high blood-sugar levels. A provision in the national health care law gave his state $46 million to insure people like him who've been denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions. But Nishimura said he can?t afford the coverage. It would cost him about $6,300 a year in premiums with a $1,000 deductible, meaning he would pay the first $1,000 out of his own pocket before coverage kicks in. (AP Photo/Danny Johnston, File)

    In this March 8, 2012 photo, Alexis Lohse, right, hugs her daughter Emma Miller, 3, at their home in Fort Worth, Texas.

Rick Perry is directing state officials to begin looking for money to keep the Medicaid Women's Health Program operating, even if the Obama administration revokes federal funding amid a fight over clinics affiliated with abortion providers.
