The Forum: The Supreme Court's health care ruling

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Over the next week, Advancing a Free Society will publish a series of pieces related to the Supreme Court's decision in National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius. The Forum will cover the law, the medicine, the economics, and the politics surrounding this landmark ruling.

Below, renowned legal scholar and Hoover Senior Fellow Richard Epstein reviews the decision on the Medicaid expansion. According to Epstein, this decision is "welcome," although not perfect, after the "unhappy performance" of Chief Justice Roberts on the individual mandate.

Earlier today, Hoover research fellow Bill Whalen provided his assessment of what this generally unexpected Supreme Court decision means for the presidential campaigns and, perhaps, Election Day.
