The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is one part of the controversial healthcare bill passed by the Democrat-controlled Congress and signed by President Obama, and is commonly known as Obamacare. Obamacare’s constitutionality is being challenged in several lawsuits. Judicial Watch has been closely following these lawsuits and has been aggressively pursuing other avenues of investigation and litigation to fully expose and combat this unprecedented expansion of the government’s powers.
Our primary areas of investigation include: the criteria used by the Obama administration to provide “waivers” to companies and unions exempting them from provisions of Obamacare; the Obama administration’s decision to evaluate medical treatments based solely on cost; “death panels”; and the regulation and funding of Obamacare in general. For more information, please take a look at a full list of our Obamacare-related Freedom of Information Act requests and results.
On May 11, 2010, Judicial Watch hosted an educational panel featuring Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Georgetown Professor of Law Randy Barnett, to discuss the constitutionality of the healthcare bill. You can view that panel on YouTube.
