ACA Individual Mandate (Texas v. California)
The Supreme Court of the United States on November 10, 2020, will hear oral arguments in the case of California v. Texas, in which those opposed to the Affordable Care Act contend that when Congress set the tax penalty for failing to purchase insurance at zero dollars, the ACA’s requirement that most Americans obtain health insurance became unconstitutional.
In this AHA blog post, Sean Marotta, AHA outside counsel, shares five things to look for when the Supreme Court hears oral argument Nov. 10 in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Marotta authored AHA’s friend-of-the-court brief in the case, and will be live tweeting the oral argument and providing analysis for AHA at @smmarotta and here on the AHA website starting at 10 a.m. ET.
