Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of Affordable Care Act

A three-judge panel of the United States 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in finding that it is constitutional to require most Americans to buy health insurance. The panel found that the “individual mandate,” as the requirement to purchase health insurance is labeled, is a “valid exercise of legislative power by Congress under the commerce Clause.”  The Arc had signed onto an amicus (“friend of the court”) brief in support of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.  Download and read the entire opinion.
