Federal Judges Challenge Constitutionality of the Healthcare Law

Hosted by

There have been 31 separate legal challenges to President Obama's healthcare reform. In five lower-court decisions so far, three judges appointed by Democratic presidents have upheld the law while two Republican appointees have rejected it. Yesterday, it faced its third appellate court, which many regard as the one most likely to get the case to the US Supreme Court. As lawyers have traveled from Cincinnati, Ohio to Richmond, Virginia and now to Atlanta, Georgia, healthcare litigation "has taken on the feel of a traveling road show in wingtips." That's according to Kevin Sack, national correspondent for the New York Times.
