Supreme Court Could Be Lining Up Against Obamacare

Print Email

In a second day of argument, the US Supreme Court today seemed to indicate that the majority of justices are coming down against the individual mandate in the health care reform act known as Obamacare. Particular attention was being paid to Justice Anthony Kennedy, long considered to be the swing vote between the four conservative and four liberal justices.

Kennedy’s noted at one point that the individual mandate, which requires Americans to purchase health insurance, “changes the relationship of the government to the individual in the very fundamental way.”

Tomorrow the court will hear arguments related to how health care reform would operate without the individual mandate.
