Could one simple argument have saved Obamacare? Jeffrey Rosen and Jonathan Cohn discuss the Supreme Court case.
“In the oral arguments over the constitutionality of health care reform, John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy seemed at times to be looking for a reason to uphold the law despite their doubts. Unfortunately, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli didn’t give it to them.”
-Jeffrey Rosen, One Simple Argument Could Have Saved Obamacare. Too Bad Verilli Didn’t Make It.
But don’t the Justices (or at least their clerks) get amicus briefs and read op-eds? Surely the nine most powerful people in the nation don’t make their decisions solely based on in-court arguments. Or do they?
Yes. Oral arguments mean almost nothing.
