Polls: Romney, Obama nearly even in three key states

(CNN) - New polls released Thursday indicate President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are essentially tied in three battleground states for the presidential race.

The president holds a slight advantage over his Republican rival in Michigan and North Carolina while polling dead-even with Romney in New Hampshire, according to the new NBC-Marist surveys. All three states' results fall within the sampling error for their respective polls.

Supreme Court says health mandate's a tax

New York (CNNMoney) – It walks like a tax and talks like a tax. Therefore it is a tax.

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the mandate to buy health insurance - ruling that it is a tax and not a penalty as originally billed by supporters.

Romney reacts to health care ruling, renews repeal pledge

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate who has long pledged to repeal President Barack Obama's sweeping health care law if elected president, said Thursday the Supreme Court ruling that upheld the law did not signal the measure was good for the American people.

"Let's make clear that we understand what the court did and did not do," Romney said. "What the court did do today is say that Obamacare does not violate the Constitution. What they did not do is to say that Obamacare is good law or that it is good policy. Obamacare was bad policy yesterday. It's bad policy today. Obamacare was a bad law yesterday. It is bad law today."

Ruling plays into campaign narrative for both sides

Washington (CNN) - The U.S. Supreme Court's narrow upholding of the health care reform law's constitutionality will launch a complex political ballet, with President Barack Obama and Democrats claiming victory and Republicans vowing to "repeal it lock, stock and barrel."

In a complicated 5-4 decision, the court upheld the law and found that the so-called individual mandate can be constitutional under Congress's taxing power - but not under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, as the government originally had argued.
