NORWALK - The Supreme Court's ruling on the health care mandate has physicians in the local medical community divided today.

Opponents believe "Obamacare" is not the solution to the entire problem because it does not streamline the cost of care. Fans of the decision say the ruling was a victory for the 32 million uninsured Americans who cannot afford medical care.

Both sides agree that today's decision will have an immediate and long-term impact on all Americans.
