Challenge to the Affordable Care Act

Pete Springer/OPB

The biggest case to come before the U.S. Supreme Court in recent memory starts on Monday. Justices scheduled an  unprecidented three days to hear the challenge to the Affordable Care Act. The impact of the case is hard to overstate. The health care overhaul was hard won and remains a deeply divisive issue. People began lining up Friday to camp outto get in to see the high powered lawyers argue before the Justices of the Supreme Court. We’ll parse the arguments for and against with two legal experts who can give us a preview of what the Justices will be hearing over the course of the three days.

What questions do you have about the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act?
