Could Challenges to Health Reform Succeed?

courtdaylogo.pngThe Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) released a report today titled "Efforts to Nullify Health Reform Likely to Fail, But Could Interfere with Law's Implementation," which serves as a relevant update to Friday's Focus on the Court post about legal challenges to health insurance reform. CBPP reports that it is indeed constitutional for Congress to impose an individual mandate that Americans purchase health insurance, though challenges to this requirement could not only weaken public support for the new law but impede smooth implementation of its benefits. For some questions and answers regarding the mandate and other requirements, especially of small businesses, be sure to check out this article on the New York Times blog.
