The Supreme Court is halfway through its 3 days of oral arguments on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, highlighted by this reaction from Justice Anthony Kennedy:
Justice Anthony Kennedy, a possible swing vote for the court, was rigorously challenging Verrilli. Kennedy said he needed to answer a “very heavy burden of justification” to show how the Constitution authorizes Congress to require that individuals buy insurance or pay a penalty.
At one point, Kennedy said the mandate changes the relationship between citizens and the government “in a fundamental way.”
Lots of news on this, and judicial bloggers are having a field day. Good time for an open thread.
