    There has been much discussion about the three days of oral arguments. My question is what happens at the end of those three days? Will the fate of the health-care act be known on Wed, or are we in for weeks/months of uncertainty?

  2. Max Bean Says:

    You mentioned your support of the individual mandate. Is this a legal or personal view – or both?

  3. LS Says:

    Will the Affordable Care Act survive without the individual mandate?

  4. Steven Kettle Says:

    Why can’t the individual mandate be reduced to just buying catastrophic insurance that prevents one from going bankrupt due to medical bills ? This is the heart of the problem. Why make someone pay for choices of others to have children ( maternity ) or to visit a doctor 3 times a year. Let’s just fix the unique commerce problem that Kennedy talked about. Don’t use that unique problem to take away more liberty by expanding into other so problems ( like problem of having a child ?? )
