Episode Summary

EDIT
(3/20/2012) Next week, the eyes of the nation will be on the Supreme Court for the oral arguments in what is being called “The Case of the Century.” At issue is whether President Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment, the health care law, will be found to be constitutional. The legal, political and social stakes couldn’t be higher. Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor at Slate, will serve as a special guest contributor for this report, taking viewers beyond political posturing to the key component of the law being challenged in court. Is this law in keeping with the powers of Congress or does it go too far? The public thinks it will be found to be unconstitutional, but many legal scholars, including conservatives, disagree. To get at the heart of this disconnect, we speak with people on all sides of this issue, providing a nuanced sense of how we got to the point where nine men and women, all unelected, will decide the fate of one of the most divisive pieces of legislation in half a century.moreless
