Harvard Business School Program: Is the Affordable Care Act Constitutional?

    The HBS Joint Program will focus upon two of the four arguments that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear:
    Whether Congress has the power under Article I of the Constitution to enact the individual mandate provisions of ACA?
    If the individual mandate is not constitutional, then to what extent can the mandate be severed from the rest of PPACA? Or, is it a necessary part of the law whose other provisions, especially the insurance reforms (such as prohibiting denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions), cannot stand on their own?

Ken Connor: Restrained by the Constitution

    Ken Connor writing at The Christian Post: “Perhaps to the chagrin of some conservatives who would have relished an ideologically-driven, politically-charged decision (and despite the wild accusations among some on the far left that this decision signals the first step towards a judicial imposition of a ‘libertarian utopia’), Judge Hudson doesn’t second guess or venture an opinion about the wisdom or merits of the legislation. His analysis is a constitutional one, not a political or sociological one, and the question he considered is simple: Does the Constitution confer on the Congress the power to penalize individuals for not purchasing a particular good or service in the marketplace?”

SCOTUSblog: Health insurance mandate nullified

    SCOTUSblog: “A federal judge in Richmond, Va., ruled Monday that Congress had no authority under the Constitution to require that nearly every American obtain health insurance by the year 2014 — a crucial part of the health care package promoted by President Obama. U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson, in a 42-page ruling, declared that ‘an individual’s personal decision to purchase — or decline to purchase — health insurance from a private provider is beyond the historical reach of the Commerce Clause.’”

Heritage Foundation: Courts may invalidate, but Obamacare is already collapsing under its own weight

From Judge Hudson’s Pen to Justice Scalia’s Ear

    Jonathan Adler writes at the Volokh Conspiracy: “Many critics of Judge Hudson’s opinion in Virginia v. Sebelius have shorted his discussion of the Necessary and Proper Clause. (Even some of us who support the opinion have accepted this critique.) But Brooklyn Law’s Jason Mazzone suggests Judge Hudson’s critics are misreading his opinion, which was written more for Justice Scalia than legal academics.”
