Today in the Supreme Court

by John W Rodat on March 26, 2012

From today’s Supreme Court deliberations on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), here’s a sampler of some news and analysis.

Here’s Adam Liptak from the New York Times, Justices Hear Argument That Health Case is Premature.

For a different perspective, read Henry J. Aaron, a distinguished healthcare economist from the Brookings Institution.

Here are several posts from scotusblog, Supreme Court followers:

Here’s The Legal Surrealism of Today’s Health Care Arguments by Andrew Cohen at the Atlantic and here’s Timothy Jost at Health Affairs.

I watched Ken Cuccinelli (VA AG) with Chuck Todd yesterday…his state’s lawsuit again PPACA gets argued separately .. after this round of 26 states. I was struck by his statement that he (and presumably the other states) would not have litigated if the penalty had been passed as a tax. That strikes me as rather odd.. I think the issue is it could not have been litigated..(there was precedent) rather than it didn’t count as an offensive mandate if it was a tax.
