Health Care Hearings: Day 1 Focuses on Tax
Next on the Schedule
Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will conduct two hours of oral arguments on whether Congress is empowered under the Constitution’s commerce clause to require individuals to obtain health insurance or else pay a penalty.
The hearings conclude on Wednesday with a morning session on whether voiding the individual mandate requires the entire law to be struck down, and an afternoon session on the constitutionality of Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling in the case sometime before July.
