Intricacies of the Affordable Care Act Ruling

Constitution

One of the key components of the healthcare law was ruled unconstitutional. While many will talk about the importance of the individual mandate, which is now considered a tax by the Court. One of the key features of the law was the ability of the Government could force a state that did not abide by all of the Affordable Care Act to lose medicaid coverage. By a 7-2 majority, the court decided against the medicaid mandate and therefore gave leeway for individual States to change their standing under the act.

Another major feature of the decision was a further definition of the commerce clause. In the following discussion Legal Scholar with the Independence Institute, Rob Natelson gives his initial reaction (before having read the full 200 pg. decision) to the Supreme Court’s decision. We will upload his full responses as soon as possible.
