On March 28, 2012 NCICL and Civitas Institute co-sponsored Lunch & Learn: Obamacare Supreme Court Discussion.  The topic of this luncheon discussion was the merits of the Obamacare oral arguments. From March 26th through the 28th, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on the Anti-Injunction Act, which prohibits lawsuits from stopping a tax before it has been imposed, the individual mandate arguments, and severability arguments determining which provisions may stand if only parts of Obamacare, such as the individual mandate, are struck down. It also heard arguments on the massive expansion of state Medicaid programs under Obamacare.

Our speakers were Mr. Thomas Farr of Ogletree Deakins and Dr. Steve Kagan of Carolina Vascular.  Mr. Farr discussed the merits of the arguments and likelihood of the law being struck down.  Dr. Kagan gave us his perspective of how the law would affect the medical industry if it should stand.
