Starting March 26, the Supreme Court began its three days of hearing opposing arguments challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
Day three of the health care arguments questioned the individual mandate: if the justices strike down a key provision of the law, what other provisions would fall with it?
The Obama administration argued if the mandate falls, then two other provisions must die with it:
- Those that prohibit insurers from declining covers.
- Charging higher premiums because of pre-existing medical conditions.
Later that afternoon, the justices heard arguments about the law’s expansion of Medicaid.
