Dates Set For Health Care Reform Arguments

The Supreme Court has carved out a week in late March to hold oral arguments in perhaps its biggest case in a decade — the sweeping healthcare reform law championed by President Obama. The court announced Monday it will hear 5½ hours of arguments spread over three days March 26-28. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) was signed into law March 23, 2010, passed by a Democratic congressional majority with the support of the president. It has about 2700 pages and contains 450 some provisions.
