104 professors of health care law have filed this Supreme Court amicus brief in the case challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act now before the Court. Former Reagan Administration Solicitor General Charles Fried, who thinks the Commerce Clause challenge to the individual mandate is nonsense, is lead counsel on the brief. The 104 professors have differing views on health care reform (and presumably differing views on the wisdom of the Act). Some favor significant government involvement, while others favor market-based solutions. What is interesting about the brief is that it compiles in one place a great deal of information on the enormity of the health care economy, the near ubiquity of the health care system in the lives of Americans, and the huge costs imposed on others by those who are not insured. When you get done with the brief, you tend to think that the mandate involves "commerce," even though the brief does not directly address that question. The brief is very well done and worth a look.
