Date and Time
July 10, 2012 12:15 - 2:15 PM EDT
Rayburn 2325 House Office Building
Featuring Michael Cannon, Director of Health Policy Studies, Cato Institute; Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute; Michael Tanner, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute; moderated by Laura Odato, Director of Government Affairs, Cato Institute.

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? Please join Cato Institute legal and health policy scholars for an in‐​depth discussion of these important issues.
