MARCH 08, 2012
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced it will host a panel discussion: “Obamacare Update: In the Courts and In Practice.” Panelists include former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum; South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson; Betsy McCaughey, president of Defend Your Healthcare, former lieutenant governor of New York; and Lee A. Casey, partner at Baker Hostetler.
On February 13, 2012, Judicial Watch filed an amicus curiae brief with the High Court challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare, specifically the “individual mandate.” On Monday, March 26, the Supreme Court will begin hearing oral argument on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.” Brought against the Obama administration by 26 states and other parties, the case Florida v. Dept. of Health & Human Services raises questions about the “individual mandate” provision of Obamacare, which would require every American citizen to purchase health care insurance or pay a penalty. Judicial Watch’s panel will feature leading experts on the legal and policy controversies around Obamacare.
