The healthcare law goes before the justices at the Supreme Court today for the 2nd of three days of testimony. So, what can we expect in today’s proceedings?
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern & Eben Brown are covering the arguments:
I’m Jared Halpern in Washington. Before the main event of the legal challenge, the justices handled the opening act – deciding if now is the time to review the case.
(Long) “You must pay the tax first, and then litigate. So that’s the baseline.”
But justices appear unwilling to buy the argument from attorney Robert Long, that the case not be heard until the Individual Mandate takes effect in a couple more years. ———— Should you be penalized financially by the Feds for choosing to go without health insurance? Twenty-six State Attorneys Generals say no.
(Bondi) “We are confident that this is unconstitutional, that they cannot force us to purchase a product.”
Pam Bondi is the Attorney General in Florida. That issue will be argued for two hours at the Supreme Court today.
