Reading guide: Obama's health reform in the Supreme Court

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act faces an existential test this spring. The Supreme Court will decide whether the law’s controversial requirement that everyone purchase health insurance – the individual mandate – is unconstitutional.  But the issue transcends the scope of President’s Obama’s signature domestic policy reform. Indeed, the court’s ruling may well represent a historic hinge moment for a fundamental question: Are there any meaningful limits to federal power?

To help you navigate this case, we offer these selected blog posts from AEI constitutional law scholar Michael Greve, author of the just-published book “The Upside-Down Constitution.”
