WASHINGTON - (AP) - A small-business group opposed to the healthcare overhaul is asking the Supreme Court to strike down the entirelaw, not just the core requirement to buy health insurance or pay apenalty.

The National Federation of Independent Business is filing anappeal Wednesday of a portion of the ruling by the federal appealscourt in Atlanta that struck down the individual insurancerequirement.

The appeals court upheld the rest of the law, an outcome thegroup says is bad for business. The law extends coverage to anadditional 30 million people, many through subsidies to purchaseprivate insurance and through an expansion of Medicaid.

The business filing comes the same day the Obamaadministration's response is due at the Supreme Court in anotherchallenge to the same law.
