Health Care Decision: NFIB v. Sebelius - MP3
Running Time: 00:49:43
NFIB v Sebelius, the health care case, has been decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court has determined that the individual mandate exceeds the Commerce Clause power of Congress, but can be upheld under the taxing power. The Medicaid expansion provision was upheld, but the Court ruled that Congress could not take back Medicaid funds from states that decide to not participate in the expansion. Join us as David Rivkin, the litigator who began this important case by filing the lawsuit in federal district court on behalf of numerous states and the NFIB, explains the decision and the dissents.
