Supreme Court to Hear Health Care Reform Arguments in March

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of different aspects of the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. health care reform, from March 26 to 28, Bloomberg News reports. The schedule will allow the justices to expand the 5.5 hours they already allotted for argument, a time span that has few precedents since argument is usually limited to one hour per case. The three days of hearings will center on distinct aspects of the health care bill, including the Anti-Injunction Act, which prevents judges from ruling on the requirement of an individual mandate until 2015. In addition, the high court will hear arguments about the constitutionality of the individual mandate that requires Americans to buy health insurance or pay a penalty, now considered a main pillar of health care reform.
