ObamaCare Showdown: Quick Recap of Today's Argument
Today was a good day for ObamaCare's opponents. The early MSM predictions that this would be an easy case, with 7 or 8 justices upholding the law, seem clearly to be incorrect. But there is no clear majority to overturn the mandate, either. In other words, this one will be close. In case you don't have time to listen to all two hours of oral argument; I've summarized the highlights in just a few minutes. Listen here.
Tomorrow, SCOTUS takes up the question of whether the federal government can coerce the States into a massive expansion of Medicaid. I'll be back with highlights from that argument. Stay tuned, but don't break out the champagne just yet.
