The Affordable Care Act (or ACA) has been challenged by dozens of states, in multiple ways, all over the country. The law remains unpopular among the public and loathed by Republican politicians, who have pledged that repeal will be their first order of business if given power in 2012. Implementation is proceeding jerkily, in part because many states are waiting till the legal and political uncertainty clears to commit to the law.
Next Monday, the Supreme Court will begin hearing three days of oral arguments addressing various questions of legal procedure and legality which will ultimately decide the fate of the ACA, and millions of Americans along with it.
Join Action NC at for a lively discussion about the future of the Affordable Care Act in light of the Supreme Court challenge and the polarized political environment in which we live on Monday, March 26 at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, starting at noon.
Professor Gene Nichol, Director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina and Congressman Brad Miller will lead a discussion moderated by Adam Searing of the North Carolina Justice Center about the constitutional challenge to the landmark health reform law and the role of government in meeting needs and promoting fairness.
Discussion to be held at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough St. in Raleigh on Monday, March 26th starting at noon. Lunch will be served starting at 11:45. This event is free and open the public, but RSVP is required for a meal.
