The ACA meets the SCUS on a sunny Thursday afternoon in Cleveland

Having said that, I am still displeased to be living in a country where helping grandma on the other side of town pay for her prescription drugs is more controversial than unilaterally invading a sovereign nation and killing, maiming, injuring, and dislocation at least a million of its citizens…

The Cleveland Chapter of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy hosted

” A Review of the Supreme Court’s ‘Health Care’ Oral Arguments”

Thursday 12 April 2012 at the Squire Sanders office in downtown Cleveland.  The presentation featured Elizabeth Wydra http://www.huffingtonpost.com/elizabeth-b-wydra)

The presenter ( who has a face made for television – on which she often appears) is General Counsel, Constitutional Accountability Center.  Ms. Wydra heard the arguments all three days, and presented a very lucid summary.  In general, she did not agree with some of the negative summaries one heard on various news sources.

She told us that when the ACA was signed into law, even conservative constitutional scholars agreed that it was clearly constitutional, and  when the first suits were filed challenging it, there were suggestions that those attorneys should be sanctioned!

She also observed that Justice Scalia read from Tea Party Talking points…

At the end of the event, I feel more confident than ever that we will win this one.
