My New CSMonitor Piece

Posted in Non-justiciable by Mike Sacks on September 29, 2010

I have two short articles in this week’s Christian Science Monitor.  One, an info briefing on the states’ lawsuit against the PPACA, has just been posted online:

President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on March 23. Within minutes, 14 state attorneys general filed lawsuits in federal courts in Virginia and Florida challenging the constitutionality of the law’s “individual mandate,” which will require nearly every American to buy health insurance or face annual fines.

Although the individual mandate doesn’t kick in until 2014, legal challenges to the mandate have been met with some sympathy in court. As these cases move forward, it’s worth taking another look at the suits.

Read the rest over at the Monitor’s website.  When they post the other piece, I’ll link to it.  My previous work for the Monitor is available here.
