Insight: Affordable Care Act / Swimmer Kevin Ferguson / TED X / Richard Lewis


 
 
Affordable Care Act The United States Supreme Court is expected to hand down one of the most anticipated rulings in history this week.  The High Court will decide whether the United States government has the authority to enforce the Affordable Care Act, which includes a mandate that every American own some form of health insurance.  The Justices could rule the entire law unconstitutional or strike down only parts of it.  Each possibility carries a different scenario for each state.  We'll preview how these scenarios will affect California with Professor of Law at McGeorge School of Law, John Sims, and Capital Public Radio's Healthcare Reporter, Pauline Bartolone.
