Obamacare Daily Oral Argument Briefing - Monday - PodcastOn Monday, March 26, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Florida v. HHS, perhaps better known as the Affordable Care Act case or the Obamacare case. The federal courts below split on the constitutionality of the health care reform act. Monday's arguments focused on the Anti-Injunction Act, and whether and to what extent it might control the outcome of the case. Professor Randy Barnett attended Monday's oral arguments and reported from the Courthouse steps on exactly what transpired. What was the focus of the inquiry of the various justices? Who asked the most pointed questions? What is expected in Tuesday's oral argument focusing on the constitutionality of the individual mandate? Professor Barnett discussed these and other questions in this special Teleforum call.

Featuring:

  • Prof. Randy E. Barnett, Georgetown University Law Center and architect of the Individual Mandate Challenge
  • Moderator: Mr. Dean Reuter, Vice President & Director of Practice Groups, The Federalist Society
