In a complex decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that the individual mandate component of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is constitutional under Congress's taxing power. What is left of the idea that the Constitution creates a government of limited powers? What does this case-of-the-century mean for both the Constitution and our health care system and what are next steps for Congress? Join Cato scholars Michael Cannon and Ilya Shapiro online for an in-depth discussion of all these issues in the immediate wake of the Supreme Court decision.

This special online-only series is an opportunity to hear from Cato's policy staff. Please note that it is not necessary to download any software to watch the briefing online; no reservation is necessary.
