WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has brought in two more lawyers to argue in front of them next year as justices decide the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The court on Friday asked veteran lawyers H. Bartow Farr III and Robert A. Long to be part of next March's arguments.

The justices will decide whether the government has the power to force people to buy health insurance or pay a tax penalty in 2015.

Farr will argue the position that even if the government cannot force people to buy health insurance, the rest of the massive overhaul law can go into effect. Long will argue that the court's review of the health care law is premature.

That's the outcome reached by the federal appeals court in Richmond, Va.
