The Future of the Affordable Care Act

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Last week, the Department of Justice surprised many by reversing its position on the Affordable Care Act—stating that it agrees with U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor that the ACA is unconstitutional, and won’t defend the law. Judge O’Connor’s December 2018 decision in <em>Texas v. United States</em> held that because the tax penalty that enforced the individual mandate had been reduced to $0 in Congress’s 2017 tax reforms, the rest of the ACA could not stand. The House of Representatives, along with several states, has intervened in the case to defend the ACA. Joining host Jeffrey Rosen to break down this case and the legal and constitutional arguments on both sides are ACA experts Abbe Gluck of Yale University and Tom Miller of the American Enterprise Institute.<br><br>For more information and resources, visit <a href="https://constitutioncenter.org/debate/podcasts">constitutioncenter.org/podcasts</a>.<br><br>Questions or comments about the show?
