Healthcare’s Day in Court: Part I – Getting to the Supreme Court
There’s just over a week under the latest chapter unfolds in the showdown over President Obama’s healthcare law.
Few laws in recent U.S. history have set off as much debate as the Affordable Care Act. While providing plenty of talking points for politicians, the future of the healthcare reform law will likely be decided by nine U.S. Supreme Court justices.
In the first part of our special FOX News Radio series “Healthcare’s Day in Court,” FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern explores how healthcare reform made it to the high court:
Fourteen months into office, President Obama officially signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
(President Obama) “I’m signing this reform bill into law on behalf of my mother.”
The President says the law increases access to health insurance for 30 million Americans.
(President Obama) “Set in motion reforms that generations of Americans have fought for and marched for.”
Moments after the signing ceremony, the legal challenges were filed, then-Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum arguing…
(McCollum) “ObamaCare is terrible law, it’s terrible Constitutional law. And it’s very rough on state in many, many way that people can’t foresee.”
Federal appeals courts are split, so – about two years to the day from the law’s signing – justices will hear six hours of arguments next week.
