Obamacare Supreme Court Live Blog – Day Three

Today, the Supreme Court will hear two sets of oral arguments: At 10 a.m. EST, they’ll discuss whether the individual mandate is “severable” from the rest of the Affordable Care Act, and whether the rest of the law — or part of it — should go down alongside. At 1 p.m. EST, the Court will hear arguments on whether Obamacare’s dramatic expansion of Medicaid is excessively coercive to the states, given that states are forced to go along or lose all of their Medicaid funding.

We had nearly 6,000 readers for Tuesday’s live blog on the individual mandate, so we’ll be back again, starting at 10:00 a.m., and going on until the end of the day. (The transcript of Monday’s live blog is here.) We’ll be joined, as usual, by leading conservative health-care journalists and policy experts. Please join us, and bring your comments and questions!

Little did I know that one day I and the magazine that I love would effectively be caught up in a version of that interminable case, courtesy of a litigious climate scientist with zero regard ...

What Is Impeachment For?

W hat is impeachment for? Seems like a simple question. Constitutionally speaking, it also appears to have a simple answer: to cite and remove from power a president guilty of wrongdoing. Aye, there’s the rub. What sort of wrongdoing warrants removal from power? I’d wager that the flames of ... Read More

Beto Proposes to Oppress Church with State

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign is within the margin of error of non-existence, but in his failure he has found a purpose: expressing the Democratic id. His latest bid for left-wing love came at a CNN forum on gay rights, where he said that churches that oppose same-sex marriage should have to pay ... Read More
