On Tuesday, the Affordable Care Act faces another legal challenge in the Supreme Court.

The justices will have to decide whether the individual mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance is unconstitutional. The lawsuit is backed by President Trump. It will be the third time the Supreme Court has weighed in on the Obama-era policy. 

Experts believe the law is unlikely to be fully struck down, even with the court's new 6-3 conservative majority.
