Supreme Court to hear challenge to health reform law

The Supreme Court has agreed to review the constitutionality of the sweeping health care reform law championed by President Barack Obama. 

The justices will decide whether congress overstepped their authority by requiring that all Americans buy health insurance or be forced to pay a penalty. The high-stakes ruling will likely be delivered in the middle of the 2012 presidential race.

Carol Costello speaks with CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin to discuss the role political prejudice will play in how the justices will decide this case.
