Podcast Episode 91: Looking Ahead: Amy Coney Barrett, The Supreme Court and the Lawsuit Challenging the ACA

In this episode, Suzanne Spradley and Chase Cannon discuss the lawsuit challenging the ACA that is set for Supreme Court oral arguments on November 10, 2020. Suzanne outlines the basis for the lawsuit — a claim that the ACA’s individual mandate is unconstitutional, and that the individual mandate is not severable from the remainder of the ACA. Suzanne details the history of the case, the arguments made on either side and the potential impact of a decision either way. Suzanne and Chase discuss Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s very recent appointment to the Supreme Court, and how her views on the role of the judiciary branch might impact the outcome of the ACA case.

Every other week, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.
