Obamacare: the longest day

March 27, 2012 | By TIMOTHY SANDEFUR

Today’s the last day of the historic Obamacare cases before the Supreme Court, and it’ll be the longest. Today the Court will hold two hearings, one on the constitutionality of Medicaid expansion (which I explained in this blog post) and the other on severability–how much of the law can remain in the books if the Mandate is struck down–which I discussed here.

Thanks to the generosity of the Cato Institute’s Ilya Shapiro and his dedicated interns, I didn’t have to camp out this time; the interns saved me a spot in line so I could get some sleep!
