This is the NewsHour coverage of the second day of three days of oral arguments about the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Today’s arguments are considered the most critical to the legal challenges, whether the legislation’s minimum coverage requirement that almost all individuals (with a few exemptions) demonstrate that they have health care insurance coverage, or be penalized on one’s federal tax return, is constitutional under the Congressional powers to regulate interstate commerce and impose taxes on all U.S. residents.

The full audio and transcript of today’s oral arguments are available on the U.S. Supreme Court website.
