Supreme Court Sets Schedule For Obamacare Hearings

On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States agreed to take on three separate cases challenging the Constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul.

The Court set aside five and a half hours for oral argument that is set to begin in March regarding the Federal health law, according to SCOTUSblog. The discussion is to be segmented to address challenges to the legislation separately: two hours of discussion will focus on individual mandates for health insurance, 90 minutes will focus on whether the law can even function barring individual mandates, one hour will be spent discussing whether the Anti-Injunction Act bars some or all of the challenges to individual mandates, and one hour will be dedicated to the Constitutionality of Obama’s planned expansion of Medicaid under his healthcare law.

The Court reportedly examined appeals from 26 States regarding the healthcare overhaul to create the schedule and issues of discussion. It did not review petitions by consumer-advocacy group Thomas More Law Center and three of its members, or by two Liberty University employees.

According to The Associated Press, Supreme Court experts already are trying to speculate on the outcome of the hearings, which will fall sometime around the final few months of the Presidential election season. Many experts believe that the law will be upheld by a lopsided vote, with Republican and Democratic appointees ruling in its favor.
