Supreme Court & the Health Care Law

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of last week, the Supreme Court held oral arguments on the constitutionality of several parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The oral arguments can be found on C-SPAN here. The video links are on the right hand side of the page. The briefs can be found here. The merit briefs lay out each side's case in full.

Believe it or not, it was riveting stuff! Take the time to listen to the second day (individual mandate) and third day (esp. Medicaid) since they seemed to be the core of the case. The oral arguments themselves were basically the Justices "asking questions" rather than each side presenting its argument in full, which I found entertaining.

In the next couple of posts, I will share some thoughts relating to this case.
