For those who have been interested in the upcoming legal battle about the constitutionality of the Obama administration’s health care act, Kevin Hart of the New York Times has written a good summary of the situation. Ever since Judge Henry E. Hudson of Federal District Court in Virginia struck down the new law’s constitutionality on the basis that the Constitution’s necessary-and-proper clause does not apply to inactivity (i.e. not purchasing health insurance), most legal scholars have agreed that the case is likely to go all the way to the Supreme Court. There, it will have to decide whether Obama’s biggest policy victory will stand or be struck down, undoubtedly giving even more momentum to his Republican critics.
