Supreme Court Upholds 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
29 June 2012
Yesterday, in a historic decision, the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the "individual mandate" provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as part of Congress’s power to tax but not as a valid exercise of Congress's power under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The Supreme Court also held that Congress cannot sanction states that do not comply with the Medicaid expansion of eligibility requirements by taking away the states’ existing Medicaid funding.
The Supreme Court's ruling on the constitutional questions surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has implications for everyone.
