(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. Supreme Court has set aside an unprecedented amount of time for lawyers arguments on the health reform law.
For three days in March, three sets of lawyers will present three arguments before the court, trying to determine whether it is too soon for a constitutional challenge to the health reform law. As of yet, no one has been fined for failing to buy health insurance.
On March 26, the court will hear augments on whether it is too early to challenge the law, because the requirement to buy health insurance has not gone into effect yet. March 27, the subject will be whether Congress has overstepped its authority. The final day of arguments, March 28, will focus on the ability for the rest of the law to stand in the case that the requirement to purchase insurance is ruled unconstitutional.
