Morning Roundup — Monday, March 26
March 26, 2012
Good morning. Below are links to major media coverage previewing the historic ACA arguments at the Supreme Court, which kick off today and run through Wednesday afternoon.
Today’s arguments will explore whether the Supreme Court can even reach the merits of the ACA challenge, or whether a federal statute called the “Anti-Injunction Act” requires that the case be dismissed and re-filed in 2014, after the individual mandate takes effect. Arguments are scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to about 11:30 a.m. Please stay tuned for an instant “quick take” on today’s highlights soon after the Court adjourns; a full blog post recounting the arguments at around 2 p.m.; and a Q & A with Dom from 3 to 4 p.m.
