Law professors' brief defending the health care act


I'm at the American Constitution Society conference in Washington, D.C. today; I'm appearing in a panel with Randy Barnett debating the constitutionality of health care reform.

Yesterday Gillian Metzger (Columbia), Trevor Morrison (Columbia), Andrew Pincus (Mayer Brown) and I have filed an amicus brief in Virginia v. Sebelius, the Virginia litigation that is challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We argue that the health care act's individual mandate is a constitutional exercise of Congress's powers to tax and spend for the general welfare.
