The Supreme Court’s Obamacare Ruling: What Does It All Mean?
In a complex decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that the individual mandate component of the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act is constitutional under Congress's taxing power. What is left of the idea that the Constitution creates a government of limited powers? What does this case-of-the-century mean for both the
Constitution and our health care system? Two panels of experts will engage in an in-depth discussion of these issues, and more, in the immediate wake of the Supreme Court’s historic decision.
