The Supreme Court Takes On Healthcare

Hosted by

The Supreme Court Takes On HealthcareLed by Florida, 26 states have challenged President Obama's Affordable Care Act, passed two years ago without the vote of a single Republican. Lower courts have been sharply divided on the principal question of whether the federal government can punish Americans who don't buy health insurance. But there's a lot more at stake and, starting Monday, the US Supreme Court will hear six hours of oral arguments on what Republican call "Obamacare." We look at the potential consequences for the President, the Chief Justice and tens of millions of Americans.
