The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the arguments brought by 26 states questioning the right of Congress to mandate Americans to purchase health care coverage. The Court has agreed to hear oral arguments on the following issues:
The underlying issue is whether the commerce clause of the U. S. Constitution supports the right of Congress to pass the Act which includes the insurance mandate or whether the Act violates the commerce clause and is therefore unconstitutional.
The Court will probably hear oral arguments in February or March, 2012 with an opinion expected in June, 2012.
